Martha is a young girl from Kenya. She lives with her aunt and two siblings. Martha completed her primary education in 2012 but could not attend high school as her aunt could not afford the school fees. Instead, she helps her aunt sell vegetables.
Two years ago, Martha was in her house reading a book when a pressure lamp exploded. She suffered burns and later developed burn contractures. The burn contractures have significantly disfigured her abdomen and distorted her gait.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Martha receive treatment. On April 23, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help Martha regain her posture. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,176 procedure.
Martha says, “I would want to be treated and trust God that a well-wisher will come and educate me. I want to help my aunt and siblings have a good life that past life has robbed us.”
