Brian was born one month ago at our medical partner’s care center, Kijabe Hospital. He is the first baby for his young family. Brian’s father works in a newly opened bakery while his mother makes and sells pots to earn a living. His father lives in Kariobangi and mother stays with her mother in-law in an area called Bomet.

Immediately after his birth, Brian was examined by the doctor and found that he was not able to pass stool. The doctor consulted with the pediatric surgery team and diagnosed him with anorectal malformations. Brian was referred to our medical partner’s care center, BethanyKids, immediately and was admitted in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for close monitoring. Later, Brian had a colostomy to enable him pass stool with funding from the Watsi community. He has healed well and is now scheduled for his next treatment, a PSARP surgery, to allow for stool passage.

Brian’s father shares his appreciation for Watsi’s support during his son’s first surgery, and says: “We are thankful to God for he answered our prayers through the Watsi program. We are still requesting for more financial help for the second surgery.”
