Mohamed is a little boy with big dreams. He is a math lover and soccer player, and at the young age of 7 he has already declared he wants to be a doctor when he grows up.
Mohamed has an abscess in his liver and the infection is making him increasingly sick. First, Mohamed lost his appetite. Then, he began losing weight. After that, he became too weak to attend school. Now, Mohamed is so weak he cannot walk. Doctors at Project Muso tell us that, “without treatment, his life is in danger.”
Mohamed comes from Mali, one of the 25 poorest countries in the world. His father works as a community organizer and earns a modest income. It’s enough to feed his family, but not enough to pay for Mohamed’s medical care.
We need to raise the $515 Mohamed needs to have his abscess drained, monitored, and medicated. With treatment, Mohamed’s doctors say he can “return to school and a healthy, normal life.”
Note: Mali is currently embroiled in serious civil conflict. This may impact the rate at which we can provide updates on this patient, so please bear with us.
