Hassan underwent anorectal surgery but passed away following treatment.

We received an update from our Medical Partner that baby Hawa Hassan’s surgery went well, but his recovery was not as expected. Following treatment, he was not feeding well. He developed hyponatremia and respiratory acidosis, which we are deeply saddened to share resulted to respiratory failure that caused his death. Our hearts are with his family as they mourn this tremendous loss.

The world welcomed a new baby boy, he has not yet been named, so goes by baby of Hawa Hassan. He is a first-born child to his mother who moved to Arusha, Tanzania four years ago looking for work. She was able to find work locally and has been earning income as a housemaid for two years now. Baby of Hawa was born in the hospital and was directly referred to Watsi’s Medical Partner Care Center ALMC when the doctors noticed he had a birth defect.

At ALMC Hospital, he was admitted to the NICU and his mother was informed that her baby needed surgery as soon as possible to correct this birth defect. His mother could not afford surgery for her son for she does not earn enough to be able to afford the treatment. His father is a shop keeper and he is also not able to afford his son’s needed surgery, they had just enough savings for their baby’s birth costs.

This surgery will enable Hawa’s baby to be able to pass stool normally, if not treated this condition will cause discomfort for the baby as he cannot pass stool, and he may stop feeding properly. If not treated, his condition may even result in death.

Hawa shared, “Please help my son get this treatment so that he can continue to feed well, I am worried about him. He looks very sick and discomforted.”
