Joshua is a three-year-old boy. He is the only child in his family.

Three years ago, Joshua was born with a congenital anorectal malformation. His parents borrowed money from friends and family to pay for the first in a series of necessary surgeries to treat his condition. They were left in debt and do not have money to pay for the second required surgery.

Fortunately, the family visited our medical partner’s care center. There, Joshua will undergo another corrective surgery on June 13. Now, his family needs help funding this $1,500 procedure.

Joshua’s mother says, “There is no where we could go to borrow money again for Joshua’s treatment. Please help our son get the treatment for the remaining stages and live a normal life.”
