Evalyne is a young student from Kenya. She is the last born in a family of six children. Her father practices subsistence farming to support his family.
Evalyne 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.
Evalyne is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on February 4. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,327 to cover the total cost of Evalyne’s procedure and care.
After her recovery, Evalyne will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
“I want to be a doctor when I grow up, to help children not to feel bad like me,” says Evalyne.
