Caroline received treatment for the burns on her foot.

Although Caroline’s surgery was postponed three times, she underwent successful treatment and has been discharged from the hospital. Her treatment delays were due to family matters, according to our medical partner.

“She is recovering well and although she still has a few more surgeries and healing before she can walk normally again, Caroline is very happy that she is on her way to full recovery,” her doctor shares.

“I love teaching, and I am looking forward to working with young minds and making a difference,” says 22-year-old Caroline from Kenya. Though she grew up without her parents, Caroline has just graduated from college with support from her grandmother and community. She is now certified to teach pre-school, and is actively looking for work.

When Caroline was young, she burned her foot and was unable to get proper treatment. She now wears an orthopedic boot, but cannot walk well, tires easily and gets frequent blisters when walking long distances.

“If contracture release surgery is not done, Caroline will not be able to walk well, and she is likely to develop an infection whenever blisters are not well treated,” explain our partners at African Mission Healthcare Foundation.

For $1,125, we can fund burn contracture release surgery and comprehensive follow-up care for Caroline’s foot, which will enable her to walk well and without risk of blisters and infections.
