A generous donor recently committed to match all donations dollar for dollar up to $25,000 to cover the cost of building a radiation room to house our new X-ray machine. This facility will allow us to provide high quality, yet affordable, imaging to pediatric patients in Guinea so that they get the care they need when they need it. We invite you to be a part of this amazing story - to help care for more children like Mamadou (see below) and provide them with HOPE for a better tomorrow.
Meet Mamadou, a 12-year-old boy our team met last year. After having surgery to release burn scars on his right leg, he had become bedridden due to complicated wounds on his foot that wouldn't heal. Despite best efforts, X-rays showed the infection had spread to his bones and he had to have an amputation.
After a successful amputation, we teamed up with several of our generous donors to help get him a new prosthetic leg that has allowed him to walk around, get back in school, and even join in riding bikes with his friends in the neighborhood.
We know with the ability to provide high quality digital X-rays, we will be able to help more children like Mamadou find the HOPE they need to live into their full potential. We would love to have you join us!
