Agrey underwent life-saving spina bifida treatment.

Agrey has had a successful surgery that has helped correct his spinal bifida condition. Through this surgery, Agrey is no longer at risk and his family is hopeful that he can lead a full and healthy life now.

Agrey’s mother shared: “Thank you very much for helping in my son’s treatment. We had no means, but you were kind and helped.”

Agrey is a 10-day old baby boy and the first child of his young parents. Agrey’s parents have been happy to welcome their firstborn. His mother takes care of their home and Agrey’s father works as a truck driver at a local sand quarry. His income is not much, but helps them make ends meet.

Agrey was born with spina bifida, a type of neural tube defect in which the spine does not properly close around the spinal cord. Without treatment, Agrey is at risk of lower-limb paralysis, infection of the exposed nervous tissue, development of tethered cord syndrome, and possible developmental delays.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,015 to cover the cost of Agrey’s spina bifida closure surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 14th. This procedure will hopefully spare Agrey from the risks associated with his condition, instead allowing him to grow and develop along a healthy trajectory.

Agrey’s mother says “The cost for my son’s surgery is too expensive for my husband to afford and our son needs this surgery, kindly help us.”
