Agness is a promising young woman from Tanzania. She has a deformity in her left leg that makes walking difficult and painful.

The youngest of four, Agness works as a housemaid to support herself and her mother. Their combined income can barely cover their basic needs. She doesn’t earn nearly enough to pay for the $500 corrective surgery she needs.

Agness dreams of designing clothes and says her wish is “to one day become an excellent tailor.” Let’s relieve Agness of her pain so she can focus on achieving her goals!

Anifa

Anifa is a student from Tanzania. Anifa is a friendly third born child in a family of four. Her mother describes her as hardworking both in school and at home. The class five student suffered severe burns on her left arm when she was three years old. While playing children's cooking games with her friends, Anifa's clothing caught fire as she was placing the cooking tin on the open fire. The severe burns saw her admitted to the hospital for a month. She healed with contractures on her left hand and armpit. At five years, she was funded by a visiting team of surgeons for a contracture release of the arm. However, the contractures on her axilla remain. The contractures limit her hand movement making it challenging to perform daily tasks. When her mother heard about our funding program from our outreach team who had visited their village, she brought her in to ask for help. Anifa is planned for a release and Z-plasty surgery in our ALMC hospital. Anifa's parents are small scale farmers of maize, rice and vegetables. Their income is limited to cater for the surgical cost and appeal for financial assistance Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Anifa receive treatment. On September 27th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to The surgery will restore Anifa's ability to move her hand with ease. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure. Anifa’s mother says, “We have always wanted to treat our daughter and correct the remaining part but due to lack of money we have not been able to do that kindly help our daughter if it’s possible.”
