Daniel underwent a skin graft treatment to reconstruct his nose.

Daniel has had a successful surgery, which was his second surgery to help reconstruct his nose after being attacked by a hyena. As a result of this surgery, Daniel can more easily breathe clean and warm air. The surgery has also helped improve Daniel’s self-esteem and stopped him from always trying to cover up his nose due to fear of his classmates making fun of him.

Daniel shared, “Thank you very much, I am very happy that my nose now looks better than before.”

Daniel is a 7-year-old student from Tanzania. He is the first born child and has one younger sister who is two years old. Daniel is a big lover of football. He is currently in class three and his best subject is mathematics. His father passed away a couple years ago, and his mother has been raising him and his sister ever since. Daniel’s mother depends on small scale farming of maize and vegetables to be able to provide for her two children.

Last April, Daniel was attacked by a hyena as he was taking a bath outside their hut in the evening. The hyena grabbed him by the leg and started running with him towards the bushes. Daniel’s mother was close by bathing his younger sister, and ran after the hyena while crying for help. During the chase and fight, the hyena happened to drop Daniel on the ground, leaving him with claw injuries, broken bones and a badly injured face. His nose was disfigured during the attack.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Daniel receive treatment. On March 9th, surgeons will perform a skin graft procedure to reconstruct his nose. Now, Daniel’s family needs help to fund this $747 procedure.

Daniel’s mother shared, “I will start by thanking everyone who made my son’s first surgery of reconstructing his nose possible because it made such a big change. He has now been scheduled for another surgery which will help make his nose even better but I have no means of getting the money to cover the cost. Please help.”
