Precious underwent a tonsillectomy.

Three-year-old Precious underwent a successful tonsil surgery. She had an uneventful stay in the hospital and was discharged home after three days. After a weeklong liquid diet following the surgery, she has now been able to eat solid meals and is feeling well. She and her mother are excited that she will have peaceful nights, without difficulty breathing.

Precious’s mother Lucy says, “It feels good to see my child treated. Thank you Watsi for your kindness. You have taken away the worries I had.”

Precious is a 3-year-old girl with a contagious smile. She is the youngest of four children in her family. Precious’ father is a bus driver and her mother is a housewife.

Since Precious was born, she has had difficulty breathing and difficulty sleeping. Over the last three years, she has had treatments at various hospitals, but Precious’ condition has not improved. She has tried taking antibiotics and using nasal spray steroids, but there has been no improvement. A church pastor gave information to Precious’ family about a hospital, and they decided to visit to see if Precious would be a candidate for surgery. Accompanied by her parents, Precious traveled for several hours from her hometown to get to the care center for consultation. She was diagnosed with hypertrophy of the tonsils and adenoids and deemed fit for surgery.

On March 3rd, Precious will undergo a tonsillectomy. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $420 to fund Precious’ surgery.

Precious’ mother shared, “I hope for my child to get treated so that she can breathe well and sleep well.”
