Consolata underwent an adenotonsillectomy and is headed back to school with a big smile.

Consolata had a successful tonsillectomy. She recovered very well and fast and was able to resume school the week after surgery. With this treatment, she is now free from the regular pain, fever, and discomfort which she had endured for two years. She will be able to continue with her schooling without interruptions.

Consolata’s grandmother says, “I am so happy and relieved to see my granddaughter smiling and having gone through surgery safely. Now we won’t have to keep asking for permission from her school for her to go to the hospital. I thank God for this support.”

Consolata is a shy, eight-year-old girl. She is the third born in a family of three children. She loves going to school and proudly wears her school uniform. She lives with her single mother, two siblings, and her grandmother. Her grandmother works in a support staff role at a local hospital to support her family.

For the last two years, Consolata has suffered from bouts of tonsillitis, pain, infections, and fevers that make it difficult for her to concentrate on her studies. After examination, an ENT surgeon recommended that she have a tonsillectomy. If left untreated, Consolata will continue to experience pain and fevers, and could be at risk of complications.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Consolata to receive treatment. On December 3rd, she will undergo an adenotonsillectomy at AMH’s care center. Now, she and her family need help raising $565 to fund her procedure and care.

Consolata’s grandmother shared, “I love my grandchildren, especially Consolata. It pains me to see her struggle with this condition. I kindly request assistance so that she can live a normal life and continue with her education.”
