Mercy is a baby from Kenya with a family from a humble background. Her mother earns wages from laundry business in the neighborhood while her father is a casual laborer in construction sites.
In October 2018, Mercy, while playing with friends, fell in a pot of boiling maize. She sustained scalp and back burns and was admitted for four months in a nearby hospital. Several graftings were done failed and her mother retorted to dressing the young child from home. If not treated, she is at risk of infection.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Mercy receive treatment. On December 11th, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure so she will not be at risk of infection and will heal well. Now, Mercy needs help to fund this $1,129 procedure.
Mercy’s mother says, “My prayer is to see Mercy heal and lead a normal life that will be fulfilling.”
