Rawda is a six-month-old baby living in Ethiopia with her mother. She loves to drink juice and play with her mother. Rawda’s mother is a housewife, and her father is a daily laborer. Her father has a small income, which can only support their daily needs.

Rawda was born with an abnormal bowel condition. Soon after birth, she developed bowel obstruction and underwent an emergency procedure. She needs to continue treatment to fully correct the condition.

“I can’t afford for my child’s medical bill because I don’t have my own income and my husband’s income is too little to cover our daily costs in the house,” Rawda’s mother explains. “I am here though the help of another organization. All I have is hope to see my baby healthy.”

Rawda’s doctors have scheduled a procedure to correct her sensitive condition. The total cost of the procedure is $1,500, and covers supplies, medications, imaging, and one day of inpatient care. Her procedure is scheduled for July 27.
