“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.
