Angel underwent burn repair surgery.

Angel was successfully treated in our facility. she had the contractures on her elbow released, allowing her to fully stretch her hand with ease. Angel who loves playing will be able to utilize her hand reducing chances of further complications such as permanent disability. Despite having permanent scars from the fire, Angel’s mother is grateful for the support offered to her daughter. She is on review schedule to assess her recovery.

Angel’s mother says, “Thank you for helping my daughter. I am hopeful that soon her hand’s utility will be fine like any other child.”

Angel is a child from Kenya. Last year, she fell on boiling cooking oil. She suffered extensive burns on her face, neck and right hand, spending six weeks in the hospital. She healed, but with contractures.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Angel receive treatment. On July 2, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her stretch her hand and use it freely. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,176 procedure.

Angel says, “I want to be a teacher.”
