Mwanzia underwent contracture release surgery to be able to fully use his hand.

Mwanzia’s contracture release surgery to enable full use of this right hand was successful. His family is relieved and feel that the treatment will be of much benefit to him. He’ll be able to use his hand again to write and continue with his education.

“I am grateful for the support rendered to my son to undergo the surgery courtesy of Watsi and CURE doctors. May the almighty God bless you and continue with the good work,” Mwanzia’s mother told us with her son smiling at her side.

Mwanzia is a 13-year-old student from Kenya. He loves playing football and he is a huge fan of Manchester United.

In March of 2017, while at his grandfather’s house, Mwanzia’s right hand and wrist were badly burned. Mwanzia now has burn contractures, which have affected the use of his hand and also his education as he cannot hold a pen or write well with his condition. In 2017, Mwanzia had burn contracture release surgery on his right wrist, and now he needs additional surgery on his right hand.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Mwanzia receive treatment. On June 6th, surgeons at AMH’s care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so that Mwanzia will have full use of his right hand and will be able to write well in school. Now, he needs help to fund this $840 procedure.

Mwanzia’s mother shared, “we are grateful to Cure Hospital and Watsi for the support for our family and we continue to plead for more support.”
