Jayden underwent surgery so he can play and be active as he grows up.

Jayden has had a successful surgery! He is now receiving post-op care, including an alternative dressing schedule to ensure a smooth healing process with no infection. He will continue to have follow-up appointments with his doctor for checkups as he heals. While his original treatment plan was a contracture release surgery for Jayden, his surgeon decided it would be better if he had a release surgery and full thickness skin graft. The surgeries will bring out better results compared to having one surgery.

Jayden’s mother says “Thank you for helping my son. May god bless you.”

Jayden is a baby from Tanzania. He is being raised by a single mother working hard to provide for her family. Jayden’s father is not in their life, and his mother has no remaining family members. She has no stable job and she always seeks different jobs, like washing clothes.

Jayden was born with his fingers on both of his hands being attached together. His mother tried to seek treatment, however she could not afford to pay for surgery to correct his fingers. Due to his condition, Jayden cannot use his fingers separately.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Jayden receive treatment. On October 13, surgeons at the care center will perform a surgery to help separate his fingers for easier use. Now, their family needs help to fund this $639 procedure.

Jayden’s mother says, “I have struggled for a while with my son, I am glad that I have found people who are willing to help him.”
