Saradjina received life-saving surgery to treat hydrocephalus.

“I am very happy because everything is okay for my baby,” Saradjina’s mother says. “She had the surgery and that was a success. I was scared when I knew that she had to go into the operating room. But thankfully, everything is okay. My wish for her now is to see her able to grow up, be able to walk, and enjoy life. Thank you for helping us!”

“Saradjina has had a very good surgical intervention to fix her condition,” adds her doctor at Project Medishare. “The excess fluids were removed from her brain and now her head won’t keep growing abnormally. She will be able to have a healthy childhood.”

Meet one-year-old Saradjina from Haiti. She has hydrocephalus which means that there is excess fluid in her head causing brain swelling. “The baby cries a lot, sometimes she vomits, and has a fever,” Project Medishare tells us. Hydrocephalus can be fatal if left untreated.

With $1260 Saradjina would be able to have shunt replacement surgery to drain the excess fluid and release pressure on her brain. This is a prohibitive cost for Saradjina’s parents who work hard in labor to make ends meet for their three children.

“My wish for my little girl is to see her able to live a healthy life,” Saradjina’s father says.

Let’s fund Saradjina’s care today so she can grow up healthy tomorrow!
