Abdala is a boy from Tanzania. He is an eight-year-old who loves school and enjoys teaching his friends how to read. His father earns a living by fixing machines, and his mother sells mandazi (Tanzanian donuts) on the side of the road.

In August 2016, Abdala was burned in an accident with a cooking fire. He is not able to use his right hand at all. This means he cannot wash, write, or flex his fingers. For this reason, he is unable to keep up with his classmates at school.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Abdala receive treatment. On March 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to to allow Abdallah to have full flexion of his arm. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure.

Abdallah says, “I hope I will be able to write again with my right hand once my surgery is done. I love school and I cannot wait to go back. Thank you for helping me get this treatment.”
