B. Zinash underwent treatment for a bladder anomaly.

B. Zinash had successful surgery and is now no longer at risk of direct injury to the bladder.

Her mother says, “We were really frustrated and troubled before we come to Bethany Hids and Watsi. After all our attempts to get our child treatment, and with all the failure, we didn’t believe when we were told that we can get the treatment through Watsi. We thought it would be another failure. Now looking back at all we have been through, we understand that God opens a window when the doors are closed. And this sponsorship program is the window for us. Words can’t explain our gratitude. We are so thankful for our sponsor, Watsi.”

B. Zinash is a baby from Ethiopia who loves to laugh, play with water, and see new things. She was born with a congenital anomaly called bladder extrophy, which is a condition in which the bladder pokes through the abdominal wall. This condition causes B. Zinash pain and irritation. It also causes infection and leakage. As a result, B. Zinash needs special attention and care.

Her parents are very worried and scared. They previously visited four hospitals, but they could not get the necessary treatment. Fortunately, they decided to visit our medical partner’s care center, BethanyKids Myungsung Christian Medical Centre. There, B. Zinash will undergo a repair surgery on April 11. The family needs help to pay for this $1,500 procedure.
