Sakaiyan is a five-year-old girl from Kenya. She is playful but often reserved because she has an abnormal condition in a sensitive area. Sakaiyan’s parents can’t afford the surgeries required to treat their daughter’s condition.
Earlier this year, the family was referred to Watsi. In March, Sakaiyan received a colostomy. Doctors recommended she return in July for an anorectalplasty and colostomy closure. If left untreated, Sakaiyan will experience bowel dysfunction.
On July 13, Sakaiyan will receive the operation she needs to complete her treatment. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,327 to fund the surgery.
Sakaiyan’s father is grateful for the support. He says, “I want to see my daughter healthy so that she can lead a normal life like other children.”
