about Brian's recovery.

July 30, 2019

Brian is a student from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four children. He joined kindergarten last year.

For four years, Brian has been experiencing difficulty swallowing and regular fevers. Frequent illness causes him to miss school. Brian 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 Brian, which is scheduled to take place on August 9. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Brian of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

Brian’s mother says, “This problem has made my son suffer a lot and made him miss a lot of class please help my son we have no means means of affording the cost.”
