Healing Burn Contractures

Portia’s Story

While Portia’s mom Sarudzai was outside, her heart sank when she heard a cry from inside the house. Portia’s sheets had caught on fire from a kerosene lamp near her bed. Her mom sprang into action and quickly grabbed Portia to pull her to safety. But the damage was done. Portia’s arms, hands, and head were badly burned. The local hospital was unable to treat Portia adequately. As a result, her scarred skin contracted. Her fingers, hands, and wrists locked in place. It’s called a burn contracture — and in economically disadvantaged countries, it often goes untreated, turning into a permanent disability. Thankfully, Portia’s family found the CURE hospital in Zimbabwe where she received reconstructive surgery. Finally, she is able to draw, color and complete her school work!
