Janet is a young student from Tanzania. She is the youngest in a family of three children. Her best subjects are biology, history, and physics. She wishes to be a lawyer when she completes her studies.
For five years, Janet has been experiencing difficulty breathing, especially when sleeping. Frequent illness has affected her studies. She was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Janet’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Janet, which is scheduled to take place on September 25. Surgeons will remove her adenoids, hopefully relieving Janet of her symptoms and helping her live more comfortably.
Janet’s mother says, “Her condition has affected her studies due to less sleep caused by the breathing problem. Please help her.”
