Neserien is a five-year-old girl from Tanzania. She is a big sister and is always eager to help her mother with chores.
Unfortunately, Neserien became sick three weeks ago. She was experiencing stomach pains that only got worse when she used the restroom. When painkillers didn’t help and the pain got worse, her parents took her to our medical partner’s hospital, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre, for further treatment.
There, they found that Neserien had developed a mass that was pressing down on her abdomen. To prevent further damage, the doctors will perform a mass excision. The surgery will take place on July 19 and will cost $689. The family has contributed $67 of their own money.
Neserien’s family looks forward to her recovery.
“Please help my daughter get help. She is in pain,” her father says.
