Edoso underwent corrective surgery.

Surgery was successful, and he is now recovering well.

His mother says, “I am happy that my child received the operation. I did not expect that the surgery will be done in such a short time. I am thankful for all the help Watsi provided we and we pray for God to provide it all the help it need. I can’t pay what they did for us.”

Edoso is a baby from Ethiopia. He is a smiley toddler who loves to play and laugh with his mother. His father passed away a year ago, leaving his mother with six children. Edoso’s mother rented out their small farm and is barely able to meet the needs of her family.

Edoso was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.

Edoso is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on April 10. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Edoso’s procedure and care.

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

Edoso’s mother says, “I was a house wife. When I lost my husband, life got difficult because he was the one who supported the family. Now I am struggling with the financial needs of my family. I am trying to raise my children with the limited money I get from my rented land.”
