Chantrea is a 15-year-old girl and 8th grade student. Chantrea has two brothers and enjoys reading books and watching movies on TV.
A few months ago, Chantrea fell from a tree and badly fractured her left elbow. She has been in pain since and cannot bend her left elbow or use her arm properly. She traveled four hours with her mother to reach Watsi’s medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC) for treatment.
Surgeons at CSC will perform an operation to reset her bones and heal the fracture, with the help of $405. This procedure will allow Chantrea to use her arm again, free from pain, so she can regain her independence and mobility at school.
Chantrea shared: “When I am healed I will go home and continue my studies.”
