Landei underwent arm surgery to treat a severe infection.

Landei had a successful stump revision surgery which has helped save the remaining part of his arm and helped in his quick recovery. He has healed well and doing so much better. Landei is now looking forward to playing with his friends again!

Landei says “when I had my first surgery I thought my arm will take forever to heal. But after my last surgery I recovered so fast. Thank you very much for helping me heal.”

Landei is an adventurous, playful and social 10-year-old boy from Tanzania.

A while ago, he and his friends were playing in the fields, climbing on electric poles as the cattle were grazing. Sadly, they didn’t realize the dangers that the poles posted, and the boys were electrocuted. Landei sustained burns to his hand and thigh. He later developed gengrene and had an emergency below-elbow amputation. However, his condition is not improving and now he needs an above-elbow amputation to save the rest of his arm.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Landei to receive treatment. On June 10th, he will undergo surgery at AMH’s care center and now, AMH is requesting $1,088 to cover the cost of Landei’s procedure and care.

Landei’s father shared, “our son’s accident found us with no money to seek treatment for him that’s why it’s gotten this bad. Please help him have the needed surgery.”

Annastasia

Annastasia is a very joyful lady. The 47-year-old is married and has five children. Two of her children have already finished school and are not yet financially stable. Her husband does not have a job but is sometimes able to get work as a bus driver when they need more help. Annastasia used to sell charcoal but she stopped the business three months ago when she fell ill and started her treatment process. In September of this year, she noticed a mass in her right breast. Three days later, she went to a facility near her home area, was examined, and told that she had mastitis. She was immediately admitted, put on medication and a few days later, she was discharged. While at home, she noticed that the swelling was getting bigger. She went back to the facility, was examined again, and referred to another nearby facility. In the facility scans and test were done and she was immediately referred to Kijabe Hospital for treatment. Upon arrival at Kijabe hospital, Annastasia was scheduled for urgent surgery. However, she is not in a financial position to cater for the surgery and is appealing for financial aid. Annastasia has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Without treatment, the cancer may spread to other organs. A mastectomy, a surgery to remove breast tissue, has been advised to rid her body of breast cancer and to prevent the cancer from metastasizing. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1110 to cover the cost of a mastectomy for Annastasia. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 30th. After treatment, Annastasia will hopefully return to a cancer-free life. Annastasia says, "When I was told that the mass could be cancerous if not removed, I felt helpless and knew that it was over for me.”
