Magdalena is a young student from Tanzania. She is the youngest child in a family of four children.

For eight years, Magdalena has been experiencing sleep apnea and regular fevers. Frequent illness has caused her to miss school. Magdalena was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause her symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Magdalena, which is scheduled to take place on November 2. Surgeons will remove her tonsils, hopefully relieving Magdalena of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.

Magdalena’s mother says, “Please help my daughter get this treatment so she is able to continue with her schooling.”
