about Michael's recovery.

November 19, 2018

Michael is a young student from Kenya. He has three siblings.

In 2009, Michael and his sister were preparing food when he accidentally was burned by cooking oil on his hand and neck. His burns healed but turned into contractures, which limit his movement.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Michael receive treatment. On November 26, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him move his head more freely. Now, he needs help to fund this $1,176 procedure.

Michael says, “When I grow up, I want to be a driver.”
