Jonathan is a playful three-year-old boy and the youngest child in a family of four children. He is currently in kindergarten and is learning to read and write, but finds it difficult with his condition. Jonathan’s father works at construction sites, while his mother sells vegetables.
One year ago, Jonathan was burnt by a hot iron, suffering burns on the fingers of his right hand. The burns healed with contractures making it difficult for him to straighten his fingers.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Jonathan receive treatment. On June 10th, surgeons at AMH’s care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so that he has full use of his fingers. Now, he needs help to fund this $874 procedure.
Jonathan’s mother shared, “we want our son to have his fingers corrected but the cost is too high for us to afford. Please help us.”
