Lomoyana is a six-year-old boy from Tanzania. He is the fifth child in his family, and his parents are farmers.

Lomoyana developed a wound on his lower right leg. As time went by, the wound kept getting worse; it become infected and Lomoyana could not walk. By the time his family visited the hospital, his wound and bone were infected, and doctors were forced to amputate his leg.

Unfortunately, during Lomoyana’s recovery, his bone was protruding through the healing wound. This raised concerns, and he returned to the hospital, where doctors have recommended a re-amputation.

Now, Lomoyana is scheduled for surgery at our medical partner’s care center. The procedure will cost $1,035 and will help him re-start a healthy life.

His guardian says, “He lost his leg due to lack of money for treatment. We are now concerned if he does not get treatment for this it might be worse. Please help.”
