Mary is a young girl from Kenya who is an active girl while at home but passive whenever she meets new people. She is the third born child in a family of four children. The family hails from Kenton, Flyover in Nyandarua County. Her father is a Boda Boda rider (passenger motorcycle rider) in the village while her mother is a housewife. They live in a one-roomed mud-built house in Kenton. Last year, Mary accidentally dipped her hand in hot tea sustaining severe burns on her fingers. She was rushed to the district hospital where she had dressing but unfortunately did not get physiotherapy. This resulted in Mary healing with contractures on her fingers. She is not able to stretch her fingers with ease, limiting her ability to utilize them. She was reviewed in our facility and contracture release of the left fingers recommended. The father is the sole breadwinner, with limited income. They are not able to raise the bill required for surgery and appeal for financial assistance.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Mary receive treatment. On September 26, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery that will allow Mary stretch her fingers with ease and reduce chances of further impairment. Now, she needs help to fund this $799 procedure.

“My prayer would be to see my daughter doing well like every father dreams.” Mary’s father says.
