about Charles's recovery.

April 15, 2019

Charles is a farmer from Tanzania. He is the third born child in a family of seven children. He is a hardworking young man.

Charles was involved in a fire accident when he was ten years old. He was treated, but after his wounds healed, the skin started contracting. The contractures were released but the wound is not healing well.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Charles receive treatment. On April 16, surgeons will perform a skin graft procedure to help him use his hand more freely. Now, Charles needs help to fund this $711 procedure.

Charles says, “Please help me get this surgery to help close up my wound.”
