Jackson is a student from Tanzania. He is the first child in a family of two children.

For seven years, Jackson has been experiencing difficulty breathing and swallowing. Frequent illness causes him to miss school. Jackson was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Jackson, which is scheduled to take place on February 15. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Jackson of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

Jackson’s mother says, “This problem has been affecting my son for years now, he needs a surgery but am unable to afford the cost please help us.”

Siphilina

Siphilina is a 68-year-old talkative grandmother. On 25th of October, 2019, Siphilina fell, sustaining severe left femoral neck fracture. She was taken to the nearest health facility but could not get treatment due to the severity of the condition. She spent some days at home as she was unable to afford medical care. She was in great pain, could not walk and had difficulties sitting or lying in bed. Fortunately, Siphilina went to Kapsowar hospital whereupon diagnosis, she had an ORIF surgery recommended. The surgery will relieve her of the pain, reduce the chances of ambulation problems and further closed fracture complications. Siphilina, a humble millet farmer lives with her daughter and three grandchildren in the village. She lost her husband years ago. Her only source of income is from subsistence farming which has very low-income yields. This limits her ability to raise the required hospital fee for the surgery. Siphilina appeals for help to be able to meet the cost of surgery.  Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On October 30th, Siphilina will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. The surgery will reduce the pain, fix the fracture reducing chances of further complications on her left leg. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $968 to fund this procedure. Siphilina says, “I want to be able to walk sit and even feed by myself like other people.”
