Dora is a child from Tanzania and the last born child in a family of eight children. She has not had the chance to join school due to her parents financial challenges. Her parents are livestock keepers and small scale farmers.
Dora was involved in a fire accident early last year. She was playing with her older sister in the evening next to their fire place and her clothing caught fire. By the time her mother got to her, she had been burnt severely. After she completed treatment for her burns, her skin contracted. Her neck movement is limited due to the skin contracture behind her neck.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Dora receive treatment. On October 18th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to She will be able to move hear head freely. Now, she needs help to fund this $608 procedure.
Dora’s mother says, “My daughter can now use both of her hands with ease in her daily activities, she now needs another surgery to help correct her neck please help.”
