Geoffrey received surgery to enable him to pass stool properly.

A few days after Geoffrey’s initial operation, the doctors found that his colostomy needed to be redone. The second procedure was a success and Geoffrey now has the ability to properly pass stool. Geoffrey’s mother was thrilled with the outcome.

“We are very grateful for what Watsi did for us and our son,” she said. “We look forward to seeing him grow up normally like other children—thank you!”

Seven-month-old Geoffrey has an inability to pass stool appropriately. Because his mother just finished secondary school and his father works in a stone mine, Geoffrey is mainly taken care of by his grandmother. Geoffrey’s grandmother is a loving caretaker, but she has two other grandchildren to raise and resources are spread thin. She is unable to afford Geoffrey’s medical care.

Geoffrey needs a proper anus reconstruction so he can pass stool through the right channel. His mother hopes for him “to have a life that is better than her own” so Geoffrey can “grow up responsible and determined.”

For $1,500, we can fund Geoffrey’s surgery so he can live a healthy and normal life!
