March 11, 2019

John is a student from Kenya. He is the seventh born in the family of ten children. He was burned on his right hand and has developed a contracture. This has limited the movement in his right hand.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping John receive treatment. On March 12, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him use his hand again. Now, he needs help to fund this $799 procedure.
