Ann is a playful and happy three-year-old girl from Kenya. She lives in a children’s orphanage.

In 2015, Ann sustained burn injuries on her hand from an ash accident. She was taken to a hospital and treated for her injuries. However, now she is having difficulty playing with other children and holding objects properly, and so has been recommended for contracture release surgery.

On October 5, Ann will undergo surgery at our medical partner’s care center, AIC Kijabe Hospital. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for $1,176 in funds to cover the cost of her procedure and accompanying lab, hospital, and medicine fees.

After surgery, Ann will be able to play with the other children without difficulty!
