Liana is a six-year-old girl and the youngest in a family of three children. She’s in grade one and likes to play a lot with friends. Liana’s mother hawks food for a living, while her father works in construction sites.
On March 13th, as Liana played with her friends, she fell and sustained an open fracture on her left hand. She was brought to a local hospital and an x-ray was performed to confirm the diagnosis. If left untreated, Liana will continue to experience pain and she may have complications.
Liana visited the hospital accompanied by her mother, who was worried about the cost of the surgery. The doctor suggested the possibility of Watsi support.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On March 18th, Liana will undergo a fracture repair procedure called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will allow Liana to use her hand again and she will no longer be in pain. Now, AMH is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure.
Liana’s mother shared, “we are not sleeping because of Liana’s pain. I pray that we may be helped so that she can be relieved of pain, be well again to continue her normal life, and continue with her studies.”
