Godlove underwent burn repair surgery.

Godlove is doing well. His wound is no longer infected, and the graft is holding well. This surgery has allowed him to use his hand comfortably.

Godlove says, “Thank you so much, all this is possible because of you. I am better because of your support and prayers, thank you.”

Godlove is a 28-year-old man from Tanzania. He works as a poultry farmer and has just started his own business.

In late 2015, Godlove was traveling with his family in a vehicle that caught fire. He managed to escape the fire, but he sadly lost his wife and son. After his injuries healed, he was left with extensive contractures on his body, which made it difficult for him to work or even take care of himself. He has undergone several surgeries, but he still needs treatment to make a full recovery.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Godlove receive treatment. On April 6, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery on his hands. This surgery will give Godlove a new life. Now, he needs help to fund this $832 procedure.

Godlove says, “I hope I will be able to return home healed and able to use both my hands to do my day to day duties and be able to help my family more.”
