Ubah is a girl from Ethiopia. She 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.
Ubah is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on May 7. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Ubah’s procedure and care.
After her recovery, Ubah will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
Her aunt says, “I am her aunt and I am hosting her and her mom after they displaced and moved from Somalia. I am separated from my husband and I am running a small tea café in my neighborhood. That’s how we are trying to support our self. I am also a refugee. For this reasons I can’t afford her medical bill.”
