Samir received treatment to remove a painful growth.

Samir’s mother says, “I learnt that the local remedies that we use at our homes may further complicate the case. This is good that we got the proper treatment near our homes. Thank you to all those who helped in the treatment of my son. May you achieve success.”

Say hello to baby Samir!

Samir is a one-year-old boy and the only child of his parents. He and his mother live in Nepal, while his father is living and working in India to provide for his family and for Samir’s future education.

“Samir developed a small raised lesion on the back of his neck which kept on increasing in size,” writes our medical partner, Possible. As the lesion grew it became more tender and filled with pus. Possible says, “Samir refuses to eat because of the pain. He cannot play or even sleep easily.”

For $220 dollars, we can help Possible provide treatment for Samir. “After incision and drainage of the lesion, Samir will be prescribed antibiotics and regular dressing will be done. This will allow him to eat and sleep comfortably,” says the team at Possible.

Let’s help Samir become a happy, healthy, pain-free baby!

Annastasia

Annastasia is a very joyful lady. The 47-year-old is married and has five children. Two of her children have already finished school and are not yet financially stable. Her husband does not have a job but is sometimes able to get work as a bus driver when they need more help. Annastasia used to sell charcoal but she stopped the business three months ago when she fell ill and started her treatment process. In September of this year, she noticed a mass in her right breast. Three days later, she went to a facility near her home area, was examined, and told that she had mastitis. She was immediately admitted, put on medication and a few days later, she was discharged. While at home, she noticed that the swelling was getting bigger. She went back to the facility, was examined again, and referred to another nearby facility. In the facility scans and test were done and she was immediately referred to Kijabe Hospital for treatment. Upon arrival at Kijabe hospital, Annastasia was scheduled for urgent surgery. However, she is not in a financial position to cater for the surgery and is appealing for financial aid. Annastasia has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Without treatment, the cancer may spread to other organs. A mastectomy, a surgery to remove breast tissue, has been advised to rid her body of breast cancer and to prevent the cancer from metastasizing. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1110 to cover the cost of a mastectomy for Annastasia. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 30th. After treatment, Annastasia will hopefully return to a cancer-free life. Annastasia says, "When I was told that the mass could be cancerous if not removed, I felt helpless and knew that it was over for me.”
