Fro underwent corrective surgery.

She is no longer at risk of complications, and her bowel function has been restored.

Her father says, “If my child couldn’t get these surgeries she might have died by now. But now because of your help and support she is alive and healthy. Throughout all the procedures and the treatment process, Watsi covered all our cost including our food in the hospital. I am short of words to explain my feelings and gratitude.”

Fro is a baby from Ethiopia. She is a cute baby girl who loves to play and laugh with people. Her father is a traditional farmer, and her mother a housewife. They have five children.

Fro was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.

Fro is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on February 22. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Fro’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Fro will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Her father says, “It is our hope that we get the next surgery and to see our child in a healthy and good position by your support.”
