Gloria underwent successful burn repair surgery.

Surgeons performed a contracture release surgery. This has reduced Gloria’s risk of disability. Her doctor is confident that after full recovery, Gloria will be able to fully stretch her fingers.

Gloria’s mother says, “I humbly from the bottom of my heart say thank you for your total sacrifice in making sure that my daughter Gloria is treated and the bill cleared. May the Lord Almighty bless you, and may his abundance be with you.”

Meet Gloria, two-year-old girl from Kenya. Gloria is the youngest child in her family, with two older siblings. Her mother is a farmer, while her father is a laborer at a Nairobi-based food company. Gloria lives with her mother in a rural village.

When Gloria was learning to walk, she was accidentally burned by hot water. She has already undergone a contracture release procedure on her body and a scalp reconstruction procedure on her head.

Still, Gloria is unable to fully utilize her left hand. Without treatment, she would be at risk of permanent disability. Fortunately, Gloria underwent a contracture release procedure on November 9, 2016.

Now, Gloria’s family needs help to pay for this $1,176 procedure.

Gloria’s mother says, “I want my child to be treated and be able to say my parents assisted me at my hour of need when she grows up.”
