Muriet received treatment for severe burns and is expected to make a full recovery.

“Muriet’s operation was a success. She has some weeks of splinting ahead but should return home able to do many more activities!”

Muriet suffered serious burns to her leg in a fire, and is unable to walk normally. The Watsi coordinator at African Mission Healthcare Foundation says she, “cannot run or play with other children,” and that she needs surgery and skin grafting to restore mobility to her leg.

Burns constitute the second most common cause of trauma-related deaths worldwide. For burn victims who survive, the next question becomes whether they will return to society as normal, productive people. In the developing world, due to lack of access to surgical care, the answer is often no.

For $500, African Mission Healthcare Foundation can make sure Muriet gets the medical care she needs to live a normal life. The cost of treatment includes surgery, hospital stay, rehabilitation, and materials.

Eudia

Eudia is a farmer and a 45-year-old single mother of two children. Her youngest just completed primary school and will be joining college next year while her daughter is in senior year three. Eudia earns a living through growing and selling onions, tomatoes, and eggplants. The income she generates enables her to cater to her needs and those of her parents as they live together. Eudia enjoys singing in the church choir. For a year now, Eudia has been experiencing abnormal bleeding, persistent backaches, generalized body weakness. She tried seeking medical treatment at a different healthcare center where they treated her for urinary tract infection. The treatment was not a success so they referred her to our medical partner's care center Nyakibale Hospital. At Nyakibale, she was examined with a scan and tests and has been diagnosed with a large uterine fibroid. Treatment will aid in the prevention of complications like anemia and the fibroid turning into cancer. Eudia is in need of treatment but is not financially able to finance it so she is requesting financial assistance. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $219 to fund Eudia's surgery. On January 4th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Eudia will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Eudia shared: “I am the sole provider for my family. My family needs me. I hope I will be able to regain my health and continue to support my family.”
