Imran received surgery to repair her bladder.

The surgery was a success!

“Baby Imran had a very good, successful and reconstructive surgery to treat bladder extrophy,” describes her doctor. “Without this surgery, her chance of being dry of urine all the time was zero. Imran now has a chance to grow up normally and healthy with no psychosocial trauma.”

“Imran’s mother was all smiles and full of thanks to the people who are involved in her child’s treatment,” the doctor continues. “She said, ‘It is unbelievable to get such a large amount of funding and I have no words to thank the people who have funded my daughter’s surgery.’”

“We plan to take Imran to school once she is old enough,” her parents say.

“Our daughter is only four months old and we only hope she survives this condition and grows up to be healthy,” Imran’s parents say. This is Imran, a four-month-old baby girl from Somalia. She and her family traveled over 2000 km to seek treatment for her condition in Ethiopia.

Imran has an abnormal bladder that causes urine to leak from her kidney into her body. Her family cannot afford the treatment that she requires; her doctors write that their trip from Somalia was paid for by “good Samaritans.” If left untreated, Imran will continue to have urinary incontinence and she will experience further damage to her bladder.

For $1,500, Imran will receive surgery to repair her bladder. “We expect after treatment Imran will be able to control her urine,” says African Mission Healthcare Foundation, our medical partner. Let’s help Imran be able to grow up healthy.
