Muntaha is a beautiful nine-month-old baby girl from Ethiopia. She has one older sister and she loves to play with her mom. Her dad has graduated from school and is currently unemployed but looking for work. Her family is semi-nomadic and they raise livestock for a living.

Muntaha 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.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Muntaha receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on October 5th and AMH is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Muntaha’s procedure and care. After her recovery, she will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Muntaha’s mother shared, “we will be thankful if she gets the surgery. And we will be so happy. We’re still worried that she might not get the necessary treatment because of our financial status.”
