Amina underwent burn treatment so she can walk easily as she grows.

Amina’s surgery was a success! She is recovering well and will return to the hospital for weekly check-ins to monitor her healing progress. Before undergoing surgery, Amina could not wear shoes, and walking was difficult and painful for her. Now, Amina can walk easily and live a more comfortable, full life.

Amina’s father said, “Thank you very much for your kind heart. My God continues blessing you all.”

Amina is a 5-year-old and the youngest in her large extended family. Her family is from the Maasai community, where most people are livestock keepers and practice small-scale farming for a living. She is a charming girl, very playful and talkative. When Amina was younger, she rolled out of bed and sustained a burn on her left foot. The burn has healed, but now she cannot wear sandals or shoes and walks barefooted all the time.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Amina receive treatment for her foot. On March 22nd, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help her fully heal. Now, her family needs help to fund this $639 procedure.

Amina’s father says, “If there is something that can be done to correct her foot so that she can at least walk with ease and wear shoes, we will be very grateful.”
