Chenda's treatment was fully funded on January 18, 2013.

Two months ago, Chenda toddled towards a pot of rice and grabbed at it, splashing boiling water on his hand. The resulting injury led to a hypertrophic scar with severe contractures, completely crippling Chenda’s left hand. Without treatment, Chenda will never have proper use of his hand.

Luckily, with burn contracture release, skin grafting, and physiotherapy, there’s a good chance Chenda will enjoy normal use of his hand.

Chenda’s parents are farmers, and Chenda is their only child. They say he is a “very calm baby who doesn’t get into any trouble.” Let’s help them get him fixed up!

Kyarituha

Kyarituha is a tailor from Uganda. Kyarituha attended school until reaching secondary school class three, but did not finish her education due to financial constraints at home. After leaving, she enrolled at a tailoring practice. Two years ago, Kyarituha stopped working as a tailor and became a homemaker when business stopped being profitable. Kyarituha's husband is a small scale farmer. Together with their 3 children, the family lives in a three-roomed house. Their two older children are in primary school, which requires school fees that the parents find difficult to supply. During her free time, Kyarituha still enjoys being able to repair clothes for her family and friends. Kyarituha is currently expecting her fourth child. She received full antenatal care at our medical partner's care center, Rushoroza Hospital. When she came to the hospital on July 19th with minor pain, she was reviewed and a caesarean section was recommended by her doctors due to a previous c-section and unfavorable fetus position. The procedure could save her from uterine rupture which puts her and her baby at risk. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is helping Kyarituha undergo a C-Section on July 20th. AMH is requesting support for this $207 procedure that will ensure the safety of both the mother and child. Kyarituha shares her future plans, “I pray for a successful surgery. I will resume tailoring as soon as I gather enough business capital but meanwhile, I plan to start farming to assist my husband in taking care of our family.”
