October 11, 2020

Hasani is a young boy from Tanzania. He is six years old and the firstborn child in a family of three children. Hasani has always been a hard-working boy according to his father. He would help graze the cattle and look after his siblings when his parents were out working on their small farm where they grow maize and vegetables for their living.

Hasani was burnt severely after being involved in a home fire accident that left him with very severe burns on his face. He was rushed to the hospital and stayed there for one month having his burns taken care of. Once he was stable that cetner referred him to our partner hospital for further management and treatment. Through Watsi funding earlier this year, Hassani had a skin graft surgery that helped cover up the wound that was not healing on his face. He is now completely healed, but doctors are recommended that he have another surgery to help release a burn contracture around his left eye and place a skin graft. His parents are requesting support for the cost of treatment.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Hasani receive treatment. On October 12th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. The released skin will allow his eyes to close properly and reduce the chances of severe complications. Now, his family needs help to fund this $874 procedure.

Hasani’s father says: “My son was able to have surgery which helped with the healing of his wound but he now needs another surgery which I can’t afford. Kindly help him.”
