Meskafera is a baby boy from Ethiopia. He already loves to play and laugh with his mom and is exclusively fed breast milk. Meskafera has three older brothers and two older sisters. His mom is a house wife. His dad is a farmer who plants sweet potatoes in their garden to feed his children, with limited income.
Meskafera was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.
Meskafera is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on March 19th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Meskafera’s procedure and care.
After his recovery, Meskafera will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
Meskafera’s mom said, “It is my hope that my baby will get treated and be like other people. I will raise him well and educate him. ”
