Koni received surgery to treat hydrocephalus and save her life.

Koni’s surgery was a huge success, and her parents are already seeing improvements in her health! She’s now able to walk, and her eyes don’t tear up as much as they did before.

“I am so grateful to all of the donors,” Koni’s mother says. “With only Koni’s father able to work to support the family financially, there would be no way for us to support the expenses for our daughter’s treatment. We want to send Koni to school in Thailand and we hope that she will become a doctor when she grows older.”

“All I hope is that she will grow up to be a happy and healthy child,” says Koni’s mother.

Say hello to Koni, a one-year-old girl from Burma who has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, or “water on the brain.” She lives with her parents, who have been very stressed about being unable to afford treatment for their daughter. Without help, her condition can put fatal pressure on her brain.

“After she was born, her head grew bigger with time. Now, her head is swollen, and the pressure of the liquid pushes her brain downwards,” explains our medical partner, Burma Border Projects. Each morning, Koni’s left eye is swollen and watery, leaving her uncomfortable and in pain.

For $1,485 we can fund the surgery to drain the excess fluid and release the pressure in Koni’s brain. As she improves, her eyes will be able to develop, and she will be able to look at things like a normal little girl. Watsi donors, let’s ensure the health of this adorable baby!
