Bedasa is a baby from Ethiopia. He is a smiley toddler who loves to play and laugh with people. His parents are traditional farmers. He is the fourth child in their family.

Bedasa 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.

Bedasa is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on November 17. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Bedasa’s procedure and care.

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

Bedasa’s mother says, “It is our hope to get the surgery and to see our child in a healthy and good position by your support.”
