Two months ago, he started to experience discomfort in his right big toe. The wound spread, developing necrotic tissue. They has been seeking care through a traditional healer in his village, but the wound is progressing quickly and becoming more painful.
When They learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), he traveled for two hours to seek treatment. On March 15th, surgeons at CSC will perform a mid-tarsal foot amputation to remove the unhealthy tissue and relieve They of his pain. Now, CSC is requesting $479 to fund this procedure.
They said that after surgery, he hopes that he will be pain-free.
