Alphatina is a mother of two children from Kenya. She loves their presence and since leaving the hospital, she has grown even more fond of them. Alphatina used to trade in second-hand clothes as well as potatoes supplementing what his husband brought from his carpentry job.
Alphatina suffered burns when the kerosene stove she was using blew up in July 2016. She had burns on part of her trunk, hands and neck. She suffers from frequent infections.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Alphatina receive treatment. On August 22nd, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure to help her heal well and reduce the risk of sepsis. Now, Alphatina needs help to fund this $1,129 procedure.
Alphatina says, “I am grateful for continued help from Watsi. I want to fully recover and be able to raise my children”.
