Say hi to Rhema, a sweet four-month-old baby girl living in Uganda! Rhema lives with her parents and older siblings. Her mother, Nancy, stays at home with the children while her father works for the local government as a district counselor.

Rhema was born with hydrocephalus, which is an excessive accumulation of fluid in the brain. This condition causes massive head size and “sun-setting” eyes, causing reduced vision. Without surgery, Rhema is likely to suffer brain damage due to the increased intracranial pressure. Rhema’s mother says, “we live and survive by the grace of God, baby included.”

Let’s raise $1750 to help Rehma survive through an endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV). This treatment will relieve the fluid build up on her brain, allowing the swelling in her head to decrease. This will put Rhema out of danger of blindness and further damage to her brain.
