Nurdin was successfully treated for burn complications.

When Nurdin was younger, he was burned on both of his hands. This caused the skin on his hands to contract and scar, making it difficult for him to use his hands and hold anything.

Nurdin’s treatment went well! After his surgery, he had two weeks of physiotherapy before going back home with his mother. With continued rehabilitation, his fingers will straighten and he will gain full functionality.

Nurdin mother says, “Thank you for the help.”

Nurdin is a four-year-old boy who lives with his parents in Tanzania. He is the youngest of three children, and likes to spend time with his mother more than anything else. Nurdin has not yet started kindergarten, as his mother wants his hand to be treated first.

Nurdin has suffered burns to his hand. As a result, he has contractures (skin tightening) causing him to be unable to straighten his fingers. Through Watsi, Nurdin was successfully treated through surgery, but unfortunately due to the conditions of his home the contractures have returned. He now requires another surgery to have his fingers straightened, followed by a period of rehabilitation and splinting.

For $870, Nurdin will undergo the contracture release and skin graft surgery he needs to use his hand again.

Nurdin’s mother shared, “I will endeavor to follow the instructions very carefully and so the problem does not come back.”
