Princess underwent burn contracture release surgery.

Princess had a successful surgery that helped release the remaining contracture on her neck to help give her full neck movement after having a partial release in her first surgery. She is still on dressing of her post-surgical wound which is doing well and healing.

Princess’s mother says, “God bless you all and add more. I will always be thankful for what you have done to help treat my daughter.”

Princess is a child from Tanzania. She is is a beautiful girl and an only child. Princess’s mother is a housewife while her father works as a casual laborer in a factory.

In 2018, Princess had gone out to play while her mother was inside doing house chores and she had left drinking water to boil on their stove. As Princess was coming back into the house she fell over the stove and the hot water poured all over her chest burning her badly. Contractures from the burn scar have made it difficult for her to move freely.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Princess receive treatment. On November 15th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her move her head again. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure.

Princess’s mother says, “Now my daughter can move her neck compared to before, if she is able to get this next surgery she will be able to fully move her neck, please help.”
