Rajabu is a bright-eyed 4-year-old boy. He resides in the heart of Mpanda with his loving family in Tanzania. As the firstborn in his family, he harbors dreams of a promising future, yet his path has been obstructed by a devastating accident. Rajabu’s parents work tirelessly as farmers and have been diligently striving to provide for their family.
However, life took an unexpected turn in 2020 when Rajabu was involved in a motorcycle accident that resulted in a severe leg injury. Rajabu’s leg was fractured, necessitating four weeks with a cast at Morogoro Regional Hospital. Regrettably, despite their utmost efforts, his leg did not heal as anticipated, and he developed a condition known as wind-swept deformity. This condition impedes his mobility and threatens to undermine his future prospects.
Medical experts have strongly advised a second surgery to reset his leg and recast it to ensure the proper healing of his bones. Fortunately, Rajabu’s family traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, The Plaster House NGO. There, the team will begin treatment on September 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $935 to fund Rajabu’s surgery. After treatment, he will be able to gain mobility.
Rajabu’s father says, “I wish to see him get treatment that will make his life easier.”
