Loveness is a 3-year-old girl being raised by two loving parents. Her father works as a part-time engineer at local garages. He is the sole breadwinner of the family. Her mother is a stay-at-home mom who takes care of the household and family. She tried establishing a small business for additional income, but it was not successful due to lack of capital. Their current income is spent on paying rent, providing food, and paying the basic bills.
Loveness was involved in an accident two years ago where she was burnt on both hands with hot milk. After healing, the wounds left her with skin contractures, where both her hands and all her fingers have hardened muscles and rigid joints.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Loveness receive treatment. On February 27th, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery so she will be able to use her hands freely again. Now, her family needs help to fund this $874 procedure.
Loveness’s mother says, “I hope my daughter gets better, I feel like this condition will limit her so much in the future.”
