Pascalina underwent burn treatment on her arm.

Pascalina had a successful surgery that helped release the contracture that was limiting her arm movement. She can now use and move her arm with ease when carrying out daily life activities.

Pascalina’s mother says, “Thank you for helping treat my daughter. She is very happy to have received this treatment. We are both waiting for her wound to heal so that she can use her arm and begin doing so much more.”

Pascalina is a charming and friendly four-year-old girl. She is the youngest child in a family of four children, and her mother is currently pregnant and ready to welcome a new baby.

Last year, Pascalina stayed home with her aunt while her mother went to sell vegetables at the market. Her aunt had a pot of porridge on the charcoal stove and when Pascalina ran into the house, she tripped over the pot sustaining burns. Her wounds have healed, but the skin around her elbow has contracted limiting her ability to straighten and use her left hand.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Pascalina receive treatment. On May 21st, surgeons at AMH’s care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. Now, her family needs help to fund this $874 procedure.

Pascalina’s mother shared, “the accident has left my daughter with a deformed left hand which she is having difficult using. Please help us.”
