Oumar is facing a life-threatening condition at just 19 months old. He has meningitis, and he’s developed chronic epilepsy as a complication.

Oumar’s epilepsy is treatable. Through surgery and drainage of his peritoneal ventricles to remove extra fluid from his brain, Oumar’s doctors say they can end his epileptic reactions.

It will take $1370 for Oumar to get the care he needs. Oumar lives with his aunt, who takes responsibility for him and his brothers and sisters. While she works hard as a tailor to make ends meet for her large adopted family, she doesn’t make enough to cover the cost of Oumar’s treatment.

Oumar’s aunt dreams of him becoming a teacher and contributing to the well being of their community. She told Project Muso, “I hope he will receive the treatment he so desperately needs.
