Back in 2016, we highlighted a four year girl with no arms and only one leg. We directed some funds to her back then and James Kataliko has provided some further funds since then.

Through the good work of Heal Africa, Samiela has been provided with a prosthesis to enable her to walk. A shout out to Dr. Kasereka “Jo” Lusi, an orthopedic surgeon who travelled from Goma to Butembo and to the Catholic hospital in Butembo who attended to Samiela. Dr Lusi was a co-founder of Heal Africa (Health, Education, Action and Leadership) which grew to be the largest teaching hospital in Goma.

The following video from 2016 demonstrates her incredible spunk as a four year old.
