Molita is a five-month-old baby girl. She is the first child in her family, and her mother works in a garment factory to support their needs.
Molita was born with polydactyly of both hands, which means that she has an extra finger on each hand. If the extra fingers are not removed, it will become difficult for Molita to use her hands as she grows older and she could face social stigma from others.
Fortunately, our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), is helping Molita receive treatment. On April 5th, surgeons at CSC’s medical center will perform a polydactyly repair procedure to remove the extra digits. After surgery, she will feel more comfortable and will be able to use her hands easily. Now, her family needs help raising $256 to fund her procedure and care.
Molita’s mother shared, “I hope she recovers quickly from surgery and is happy.”
