Min is a seven-month-old boy from the Philippines who was born with a cleft lip. His mother had difficulty feeding him, and she stopped working to take care of him full-time.
Min’s mother worried that as he grew, Min’s condition would bring him unwanted attention. She hoped that her son would enjoy a normal childhood. Fortunately, Min underwent cleft lip surgery on October 17, 2016.
Min’s father is the sole earner in their family, working as a chef in a local restaurant. They need help to cover the cost of Min’s $322 surgery.
“We don’t have enough capacity to support the operation because we are just starting a family,” says Min’s mother. “We really need your assistance….I will do everything to see that he is taken care of…Thank you so much.”
