Kiya is a beautiful two-month-old baby girl, the only child of her parents who live in Ethiopia. She enjoys playing with her mum and breastfeeding. Kiya's father works as a day laborer at a construction site, and her mother also worked as a day laborer before Kiya's birth. Both her parents did not complete their education as desired; her mother completed high school but was unable to pursue further education after her own mother passed away, and her father went to school up to grade seven. Their combined income is barely enough to meet the family's basic needs, often leading to skipped meals. Consequently, they struggle to afford medical bills. Kiya was born with an anorectal malformation, a condition in which the anus and rectum (the lower end of the digestive tract) do not develop properly, and can lead to a partial or complete intestinal blockage. Upon learning of Kiya's condition, her parents were devastated. They sought help at a local hospital, and were referred to our medical partner's care center, BethanyKids Myungsung Christian Medical Center. Despite their fears of traveling a long distance, a social worker from BKMCM guided them. The community rallied to support them with transport funds, and a kind stranger helped them with motel expenses, allowing them to reach the hospital for Kiya's treatment. They were warmly received at the hospital and underwent immediate assessment where it was determined that Kiya needed to undergo a series of procedures to correct the condition. Kiya has undergone a colostomy which has significantly eased her discomfort. She is scheduled to undergo another procedure to correct her condition on June 6th. After recovery, Kiya will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Kiya's procedure and care. Her parents are hopeful for a full recovery. Kiya's mother says, "I am optimistic that she will make a full recovery from her condition and we can return to our home. After recovery, I hope to take the time to educate her and help her build a promising future."
