Prisla underwent burn treatment so she can use her hand.

Prisla has had a successful surgery that has helped release her burn contracture, which was making it difficult for her to use her fingers to hold things and carry out daily life activities. Through this surgery, Prisla’s hand and fingers are now straight and are healing well. The medical team shared that she may need an additional surgery as she grows to fully correct both hands.

Prisla’s uncle says, “Thank you for your kindness and I pray that God gives you more strength to help more needy patients.”

Prisla is a charming and social 5-year-old girl. She is an only child born who loves to play with other children. Prisla’s parents separated when she was around two years old and she has been raised by her father with the help of her grandparents and uncles. The father is a small-scale famer who also does casual jobs to get money to support her upbringing.

At two years old, Prisla was severely burned when she accidentally dipped her hands in a pot of boiling water. Prisla was never taken to hospital and instead treated with traditional medication at home. Prisla is now having difficulty using her hands in daily life activities due to her contracted fingers. Prisla has been scheduled for surgery to start correcting the right-hand fingers.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is helping Prisla receive treatment. On May 12th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her finally straighten her fingers. AMH is requesting $639 to fund this life-altering procedure.

Prisla’s uncle, who brought her for care, shared, “Her father cannot afford to take her to hospital, please help get her fingers corrected.”
