Success! Gladys from Malawi raised $1,000 to get healthy.

  • $1,000 raised, $0 to go
Fully funded
Gladys's treatment was fully funded on January 26, 2013.

Gladys is a 6-year-old girl with severe burns on half of her body. After four months, her burns are finally beginning to heal, but a post-burn scar contracture on her hip is restricting her movement and preventing her from walking normally.

Fortunately, surgeons at CURE Malawi can operate on Gladys to release her hip contracture and enable her to walk normally again.

Gladys is a remarkable little girl who remains positive in spite of adversity. Her doctors say “she lights up the ward with her smile” and “her spirit is amazing.” We look forward to the CURE surgeons restoring Gladys’ ability to walk and giving her the opportunity to live a happy, healthy life.
