Jane is a baby from Kenya. She is the youngest of three children.
Jane has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of her condition, Jane has been experiencing irritability and she is at risk of brain damage. Without treatment, Jane will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the cost of surgery for Jane that will treat her hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 30 and will drain the excess fluid from Jane’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Jane will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl.
“I am glad that God has come in through Watsi,” says Jane’s mother.
