Ester is a baby from Tanzania. She is the youngest in a family of two children. Her parents are small scale farmers.

Last summer, Esther sustained burns across her body. Her arm has become rigid, and she can no longer straighten it.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Ester receive treatment. On November 5, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her regain function of her arm. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
