Milka is a sweet 14-month-old girl from Kenya. She is the youngest in her family of five children. At birth, her doctor noticed that she had an abnormal condition in a sensitive area, but the hospital was unequipped to treat this condition. When Milka’s sibling received treatment for a cleft lip and palate, she was brought along to our medical partner’s hospital.
Fortunately, Milka underwent the first of three corrective surgeries on November 25, 2016. After recovery, she should experience improved digestive function.
Milka’s family lives in a two-roomed grass house on their ancestral land. Her parents are farmers, and they also work as hired laborers on neighboring farms. They need help to pay for this $1,500 treatment.
“I want Milka to lead a normal life without complication,” says her mother.
