Meet Diana: a 17-year-old bright, social, and jovial girl at our partner’s clinic in Voi, Kenya. Diana is the second born in a family of three children. Their family hails from Sofia village in Taita Taveta county and her single mother is a small business lady.

Diana was born healthy, however, when she was seven months old, her mother noticed her condition when she started crawling. She could not stand or walk, and her left part of the body was weak. It is then that Diana’s mom learned that she has a condition known as Hemiplegic CP, causing paralysis of one side of the body.

Diana’s left hand is greatly affected and she cannot hold things or engage in household duties like washing clothes and dishes. Her desire is to have her hand straight and functional so that she can be independent and do her own things at home and in her future. Diana’s mother is unable to raise the estimated cost of $1,224 and has requested for support for her daughter’s surgery.

“I would like to request for support so that my hand can function well and I can help my mother at home. If my hand functioned normally, I will be happy,” Diana told us.
