Sandrah underwent successful treatment for burn complications.

We are pleased to report that Sandra’s surgery to treat her burn contractures was a complete success!

Sandra’s mother is very excited that her daughter will now be able to play with her friends, go to school, complete her homework and help out with household chores without any assistance.

“I have been looking for money to cater for the surgery but I have not even got a half of the amount. I love Sandrah and I would love to see her growing like other children. My hope is to see her coming out of the surgery healing well and progressing with her studies well,” says Sandrah’s mother.

Sandrah is a six-year-old girl, the third out of four children. Sandrah loved the kitchen and would often pretend to cook. Three years ago, as she was doing her “cooking” in the kitchen, she lost control near a pot of boiling water, which caused burns to her left hand and left back. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she was treated and discharged after one and a half months.

Because of her burns, Sandrah developed burn contractures on her left hand. Burn contractures happen when the skin scars after burning. These scars cause the skin tighten up, and make it hard to move. Currently, Sandrah is unable to lift anything because of the contractures on her hand.

A doctor has recommended surgery to release the burn contractures. After surgery, Sandrah should be able to carry out her normal duties confidently and independently. Surgery will also help alleviate the pain she has experienced for the last three years.

“I have been looking for money to cater for the surgery but I have not even got a half of the amount,” said Sandrah’s mother. “I love Sandrah and I would love to see her growing like other children. My hope is to see her coming out of the surgery healing well and progressing with her studies well.”

Watsi is requesting $799 to help fund Sandrah’s procedure, scheduled for June 11.
