Trust is a student from Tanzania. He is an active, happy, and self-confident fourth grade student. Trust likes studying mathematics and English and playing football. Trust’s father is a pastor, and his mother is a stay-at-home mom. The family lives in a rented house.

For five years, Trust has been experiencing difficulty swallowing and sleeping. This leads to breathing obstruction and chest pain. Trust was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Trust, which is scheduled to take place on December 28. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Trust of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

Trust’s father says, “I believe that Trust will get treatment and he will be able to continue with his studies as required. I promise to lead him through his life till he grows up so that he can be a famous and successful football player in the world.”
