Greta was born with a condition that caused her head to be extremely large. Greta was unable walk, unable to talk, and unable to see and needed an expensive surgery to cure her. I am so thankful to GCA for paying for the surgery. Greta’s head is now returning to normal and she can see and hear. The doctors think she will soon be able to walk. God bless your work here in Burundi!
