Glory is a child from Tanzania. She is the youngest in a family of two children. She loves to play with other kids.

Since early last year, Glory has been experiencing difficulty breathing and eating. She 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 Glory, which is scheduled to take place on December 13. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Glory of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.

Glory’s mother says, “She has been suffering since last year but I couldn’t afford the surgery cost to help her. Please help my daughter get the needed surgery.”
