Abigael underwent her post-burn treatment.

We’ve just heard from our Medical Partner that Abigael had a successful surgery. The burn contractures on her hand were released and she is recuperating well. With total healing, she will be able to utilize her hand with ease and reduce chances of permanent hand impairment.

Abigael’s grandmother is thankful for the support offered. She shared, “Thank you for supporting my grandchild’s surgery. I am grateful.”

Abigael is a three-year-old girl from Kenya. Her mother is a 20-year-old student due to complete her high school education. Her grandmother and uncle are the sole breadwinners of the family. From bi-monthly payments of selling milk, her grandmother makes $15 which mostly pays fees for her children. This leaves her grandmother with little income to take care of any other family needs.

Abigael is a playful young girl. When she was two years old, in 2018, Abigael was playing with her friends and she ran into the kitchen, falling into boiling water. She dipped her left hand into the water and had spillover on her gluteal region. She is now not able to move her fingers.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Abigael receive treatment. On February 19th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so she will be able to move her fingers easily. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,176 procedure.

Abigael’s grandmother says, “My prayer is to see my grandchild utilizing her hand with ease.”
