Angel is a young student from Tanzania. She is in fifth grade and loves mathematics, science and English. She wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Her father works as a shopkeeper while her mother keeps a small garden of vegetables.

For seven years, Angel has been experiencing regular infections, difficulty breathing, and sleep apnea. This has affected her school attendance and performance. Angel was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Angel, which is scheduled to take place on May 17. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Angel of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.

Angel’s father says,”I would really like to see my daughter get the help she very much needs. It hurts me that I cannot help her get the needed surgery. Thank you for helping me.”
