Fridah underwent burn treatment.

Fridah had a successful contracture release on her right wrist. After full recovery, Fridah will regain full function of her hand.

Our medical partner shares, “The smile radiating from Fridah and her mother signified that they were indeed happy, having stayed in the hospital for a week.”

Fridah’s mother says, “I am thankful to Cure Hospital and to Watsi for getting my daughter treated. I had visited a different hospital within our area, but could not get assistance, but you have helped me in a time I almost gave up. God bless you!”

Meet Fridah, a kindergarten student from Kenya. She lives with her mother and her four older siblings. Fridah’s father passed away in 2013, and her mother works hard to support her children by selling vegetables.

When Fridah was one year old, she was involved in a fire accident that left serious burn wounds on the right side of her body. Following her injury, Fridah stayed in the hospital for treatment for five months. Even though her wounds have since healed, Fridah has several burn scar contractures on her right hand. The tightening of the scarred area makes it difficult for Fridah to use her right hand to write and perform other daily tasks. For this reason, she has been held back in school.

Fridah requires surgery to release her burn scar contractures. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), has arranged for Fridah to undergo surgery on March 14. This surgery is costly, and Fridah’s mother cannot afford to pay for the surgery on her own. AMHF is asking for $799 to help pay for Fridah’s surgery.

Fridah’s mother says that after the surgery, she hopes her daughter “will be able to catch up with her friends at school.”
