Cire's birthday.

It was a birthday he’ll never forget. On the morning of his 20th birthday, Cire was wheeled into the operating theatre to finally get rid of the tumour on his face.

To top it off, Cire’s care team threw him a belated celebration the following day! “It felt like getting an extra gift,” Cire said. “I was grateful for the surgery and then they gave me this celebration, I was so happy.”

You can make a life-transforming difference for people like Cire, still waiting for access to essential surgery. Please give what you can, today!
