Denis is a young student from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of two children. Denis is currently in first grade and enjoys mathematics and drawing classes. He is a loving and caring brother to his sister and loves playing different games with his friends.
Denis’s mother is a businesswoman who sells snacks at the bus stand. His stepfather is a painter.
When he was two, Denis sustained serious burns. His mother was boiling beans in the kitchen, and Denis walked to the hot cooking pot and put his right hand in the boiling beans. Now, Denis cannot easily move his right wrist, which affects his performance in school.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Denis receive treatment. On March 6, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to give him full use of his right wrist. Now, he needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
Denis says, “I will be happy if I will be able to use my hand to hold a football and play with my friends. Thank you very much for helping me and my family by paying for this surgery.”
