Edegeline is received treatment for her cleft lip and palate.

Edegeline’s lip is healing well. Her mother says she could not believe that doctors “could bring these unbelievably good changes to my baby’s life.”

“I cannot explain how good I feel,” she continues. “I am excited to go back home with my baby and take her to the family for them to see how she is more beautiful and healthy now.”

Meet Edegeline, a one-year-old girl from Haiti who is the first and only child in her family. Edegeline’s mother is a teacher and her father is currently unemployed. Both of them work very hard to make sure their beautiful daughter grows up healthy and strong.

Our medical partners at Project Medishare first met Edegeline when her parents sought help for her cleft lip and palate. “This condition prevents her from eating and drinking normally in addition to leaving her with a facial deformity,” they write. “Edegeline’s parents cannot pay for the surgery she needs because they don’t have enough money or anybody to help them.”

For $960, we can help Project Medishare provide Edegeline with reparative surgery to her mouth which will “give her access to a better life and good health”. “She is my joy and we do the best we can to help her and provide her with a good future,” her mother says. Let’s do our part to help Edegeline out!
