Winfred is a young teenage girl from Kenya. She is the first born in a family of three children and lives with her mother and aunt. Her mother sells groceries and her aunt is a cleaner in a local dispensary.

Winfred was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction which has made her life very difficult.

Winfred is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on July 20th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,393 to cover the total cost of Winfred’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Winfred will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Winfred’s aunt shared, “I will be grateful to see that Winfred gets treated.”
