Lanyor underwent burn contracture release surgery.

Lanyor has had a successful surgery that has helped release his right-hand finger that had a contracture. His condition was making it impossible for him to straighten and use his fingers to hold things. Through this surgery, his fingers are now straight though he is still recovering with regular dressing for the post-surgical wound as it heals.

Lanyor’s father says, “Am very grateful for making my child’s treatment possible by funding his treatment cost. God bless you.”

Lanyor is a two-year-old cheerful boy, the second-born child in his family. He has contractures on his right fingers, crippling his ability to hold anything with the hand. He was sleeping in his parent’s Masai hut when, according to his mother, woke up and unknowingly placed his hand on the open fire that was set up to warm the hut. He had burn wounds treated at the hospital but healed with contractures. Lanyor’s father tried seeking treatment in a hospital near their place but was referred to ALMC hospital. Lanyor’s parents depend on livestock keeping for their living. They were not able to raise sufficient money for a hospital visit and medical expenses.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Lanyor receive treatment. On October 15th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to The surgery will release his fingers allowing Lanyor to regain his right hand’s utility. Now, he needs help to fund this $608 procedure.

Lanyor’s father says, “I would love to see my son use both of his hands in his daily activities. Please help treat his right hand.”
