Sapuro underwent surgery to heal his foot.

Sapuro has had a successful surgery that has helped heal a wound on his left foot which had developed into osteomyelitis. Through this surgery, Sapuro’s wound will finally heal, helping him recover quicker so that he gets back to walking without support. He is finishing up treatment and showing such great improvement.

Sapuro says: “I hope now that my wound has been treated, my foot will heal so that I can start walking.”

Sapuro is a bright student from Tanzania. He is social, friendly, and funny. He’s in class three in school and his best subject is mathematics. Sapuro is the third born child in a family of seven children.

“It was last year on a Saturday afternoon, as I was looking after my father’s cattle. It had rained for a few hours, so the ground was slippery. I was grazing my father cattle’s on a slope which had green pasture. As I was siting under a tree, I saw one cow going down the slope and I had to run after it to bring it back because at the bottom there was a road where trucks carrying sand and rocks from the quarry pass through. As I was running, I slipped and rolled all the way to the road just as a truck was coming and one of the tires went over my foot. I have never been able to walk well since then,” Sapuro recounted about how he injured his foot. Now he cannot walk and it has really impacted his life.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Sapuro receive treatment. On March 15th, surgeons will perform a skin graft procedure which aims to prevent amputation of his foot should the infection persist. Now, Sapuro’s family needs help to fund this $747 procedure.

Sapuro says, “I miss walking without support and being able to run around freely.”
