Augostino is a playful boy in kindergarten, who hails from Samor village in Western Kenya.
One year ago, Augostino suffered severe burns to the left side of his face when he was trying to fetch food. As a result of his injury, Augostino developed scar contractures, which have tightened the skin around the burns.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Augostino receive treatment. On May 1st, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him heal. Now, his family needs help to fund this procedure, which will cost $1,478.
Augostino’s father says, “I want my child to have a good look just like other children. I always ask myself why this happened to him.”
