Juma is a young farmer from Tanzania. He is the fifth born child in a family of seven children.

When he was five years old Juma was in an accident in which he burned his foot. The skin around his foot contracted. His walking is affected, and he feels pain when he walks for a long distance.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Juma receive treatment. On March 4, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him walk without pain and discomfort. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure.

Juma says, “Please help correct my feet.”
