Dennis is a nine-year-old boy and the oldest in a family of four children. His mother shared that she works hard on people’s farms in the villages, and his father is also a farmer.
Dennis fell into a fire that unfortunately burnt half of his right arm. Since the burn, his elbow and wrist have developed a contracture, which has caused him pain. He also cannot extend his arm fully.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Dennis to receive treatment. On June 1st, surgeons at AMH’s care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery on his right elbow, wrist, and fingers. After surgery, he will be able to use his hand without any limitations. He will also continue his education, use his hand to write, and help out his parents at home. Now, their family needs help to fund this $840 procedure.
Dennis’s mother shared, “my desire is to see Dennis using his hand like other boys. Any kind of help to my son to undergo surgery will be greatly appreciated.”
