Esupat is a 10-year-old girl and the third-born in a family of six children. Esupat is a friendly, social, and hard-working girl. Since she was young, her mother says she has always wanted to give a helping hand to anyone she saw working hard.
When Esupat was younger, she was involved in a fire accident. Esupat’s grandmother was about to start a fire when Esupat offered to help instead, so her grandmother went out to clean a pot. When Esupat started the fire, it caught on her clothing around her chest and neck. The resulting burns healed and left her with skin contractures, which limit her neck mobility. It is difficult to move her neck, and she has not attended school since the accident.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Esupat receive treatment. On March 8th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to restore her neck mobility. Now, she needs help to fund this $639 procedure.
Esupat’s mother shared, “Please help my daughter. She feels different because other children make fun of her, and we are even scared to send her to school. Please help her get this treatment.”
