John is a child from Tanzania. He is almost four years old. He lives with his grandmother.
One year ago, John was playing with matches while his grandmother was at the hospital. He sustained burns on the right side of his body. Now, he cannot move his right hand.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping John receive treatment. On March 6, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to allow him to lift his hand and carry things easily. Now, he needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
“I pray to God that John gets treated, recovers well, and joins school,” John’s grandmother says.
