Neema is a child from Tanzania. She is the fourth born child in a family of four children. Neema’s mother is a stay home mother she is was working before Neema’s birth, but after Neema was born with Spinal Bifida she had to be committed to taking care of Neema and her father is a small business man.
Three months ago, Neema has been experiencing difficulty in breathing and sleep apnea. She was given medication to use for a few days which helped but her condition has been worsening as she is growing up. Neema was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Neema, which is scheduled to take place on August 23rd. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Neema of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Neema’s mother says, “Neema’s condition is getting worse she is not sleeping well and her health is deteriorating. Please help her get this treatment.”
