Neema is a six-year-old student who likes studying and drawing. She lives with her mother in Tanzania. Her mother works hard as a vegetable seller to provide for her daughter.

Neema has been diagnosed with a case of enlarged tonsils and adenoids. This makes it difficult for Neema to breathe and swallow.

On April 27, Neema will undergo a tonsillectomy to remove her swollen and infected tonsils. Neema’s family has raised $24 for her surgery, but they require an extra $633 to fully cover the costs. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for donations to assist Neema’s family.

Neema’s mother says, “I will be very happy to see her attending school and becoming a nurse.”

Let’s help Neema to achieve that goal!
