Maisori underwent life-changing treatment for his congenital hand condition.

Maisori has had a successful surgery that has helped release his fingers and surgically remove the extra digit that was making it hard for him to hold things. He is currently having daily dressing changes to minimize the risk of infection and his post-surgical wound is doing well. Through this treatment, Maisori will be able to lead a normal life and he will be able to carry out daily life activities with both of his hands without the challenges he was going through.

Maisori’s father shared, “My family and I are really grateful for what you have done helping correct my son’s fingers. Thank you very much.”

Maisori is a three-year-old boy and the youngest in his family of three children. He is a friendly and playful boy. Maisori was born with an extra finger digit and a congenital hand contracture. His parents had tried to seek treatment for him, but were informed that he would need his extra digit to be amputated and then also release the contracture on his last little finger. They were not able to afford the surgical costs so were not able to go forward with the treatment.

Maisori’s father works as a driver while his mother sells food at a local restaurant called “mama ntilie “(mum serve me). Maisori is having a hard time holding things with his right hand due to his fingers and has pain in his hand.

Maisori’s parents heard about Watsi’s Medical Partner Care Center ALMC-The Plaster House and they decided to bring him to try seek for help. This treatment will allow Moisori to able to use his right hand more and he will be able to look after himself and be more independent as he grows up.

Maisori’s father told us, “Please help my son get this treatment so that his hand can be okay and he can be able to look after himself as he grows up.”
