Field Report by Lauryn Vickers

BURUNDI— Kennedy was born with a vibrant soul. Full of curiosity, he’s always looked at the world in front of him with wonder. But severe burn damage made his life much more difficult — until you helped.

Third-Degree Burns Without Proper Treatment

But one day while his mother cooked on an open fire, Kennedy came too close to the flame and suffered severe burns. Devastated, his parents rushed to his aid, giving him the only burn treatment they could provide. But Kennedy never got proper treatment for his severe third-degree burns. And the scarring left him with limited use of his arm.

The Operation Blessing Supported Kibuye Hope Hospital In Burundi Corrected Burn Damage Issues

Over a year later,  Kennedy was referred to the Operation Blessing supported Kibuye Hope Hospital in Burundi. The next month he received two operations. Specialists corrected issues caused by the burns on his elbow and shoulder. Thanks to your generosity, Kennedy’s arm is much better, and he can move it freely!

Kennedy is recovering from burns in Burundi.

Kennedy’s recovery process took approximately three months. His bright personality began to blossom again. Kennedy bonded with the medical students who cared for him, joining them with his own chart and stethoscope as they made their morning rounds.
