Ramita is a two-year-old girl who has been unable to say her first words. Ramita was born with ankyloglossia, often called “tongue-tie,” a congenital anomaly that can affect speech, feeding, and oral hygiene.

Because of her condition, Ramita cannot speak, feels discomfort in her tongue, and has trouble eating. Her mother is very worried about her only child’s speech development, but the cost of surgery is out of reach for Ramita’s parents. Her mother does agricultural work and her father works in India to support the family.

With your help, Ramita can receive the $965 surgery she needs to live a healthier life and let her voice be heard!

Gideon

Gideon, who was born with intellectual disabilities, lives in and attends a special school in Eldoret town. Gideon likes being in school and he likes drawing during his free time. His parents live in the village and it’s been a long time since Gideon has seen them, so he is looking forward to seeing them when he gets treated. Gideon came to the hospital after having a swelling in a sensitive area for more than two years. He reports that it was gradual on the onset but worsened with time. Gideon was brought to the hospital by one of his relatives after they were told of Gideon's condition. Before they came to Kapsowar Hospital, they had tried many other hospitals, but every time they were asked to pay huge amounts of money for treatment, which they cannot afford. Gideon has an appointment for a hydrocelectomy surgery to repair the double hernia bulges. He has been experiencing severe discomfort in the affected area and a mild headache, and feels ashamed walking around due to the swelling. Currently, Gideon is under the care and support of the Samaritans, but they don’t have money to pay for his surgery, only for room and board. They are asking anyone reading this story to support Gideon so he can undergo a successful surgery for recovery. Gideon is a happy young man who looks forward to seeing his parents soon. His uncle says, “I will be happy to see him without the swelling. He deserves to live a happy and healthy life like others.”
