Collins is a polite and humble 14-year-old student and the third born in a family of four children. He is in primary school class six and hopes to become a doctor in the future. His mother is a housewife while his father works as a farmer.

When he was one year old, while he was crawling, Collins accidentally fell on boiling water in a pan. He was taken to a nearby hospital for first aid for his burns. Now, he has burn scar contractures on his feet and has difficulty walking and running. His condition has affected his self-esteem, because he cannot play with his friends in school and at home.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Collins receive treatment. On October 25th, surgeons at AMH’s care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him wear shoes confidently, walk well, and play with his friends. Now, he needs help to fund this $840 procedure.

Collins shared, “I am happy because after the surgery, I will be able to walk, run and play with my mates in school and when I’m home.”
