Elizabeth is a 10-year-old student. She is a hard-working, oldest sibling of 4 children, who likes to help her mother with daily household chores. She is currently in class two at school and her best subject is Swahili. Elizabeth’s parents are small scale farmers, who grow maize, beans and vegetables. Their income is very modest, which makes it out of reach to cover Elizabeth’s $874 medical treatment and care.

In November 2021, Elizabeth had a fire accident that left her with burns on her body. She healed but was left with contracting scars, which make walking difficult. She has a hard time carrying out her daily life activities due to this lasting complication from the burn accident.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Elizabeth receive treatment. On March 3rd surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery. Now, she and her family needs help to fund this procedure.

Elizabeth’s mother says, “After the fire accident my daughter now struggles to walk and even carry out her daily life activities.”
