Musembi and fam (1)

Now, with your help, Musembi can go to school.

This past March Musembi Katumbi underwent life changing surgery through the generosity of Global Health Partnerships. Because of developmental deformities of his legs, Musembi could not walk or stand on his own very well. As the oldest of three brothers, the only thing six year old Musembi wants to do is play with his brothers. Thankfully the surgery has given him the freedom to move and play. Although his knees still get weak after play, he is quite happy to be able to move around with limited pain.

Musembi’s desperately poor family is extremely grateful that, thanks to the support of GHP, they are able to have their joyfully shy Musembi back. Attending school is now a reasonable dream for Musembi. He is still too weak to walk 3km daily through rough terrain. His family is seeking support for expenses to get Musembi back and forth to school until he is strong enough to walk.

Your tax deductible gift to Global Health Partnerships will help Musembi and 50,000 more desperately poor people served by GHP.

Please help bright young Musembi go to school for only 50⊄ a week.
