Aye Aye is a four-year-old girl who lives in a refugee camp with her parents and three siblings. Her two oldest siblings attend school in the camp. Aye Aye’s stepfather supports the family working as a day deliverer. His income is not enough to provide for all of the family’s needs.

When Aye Aye was born, her mother noticed a bump on her nose. The bump, indicative of a neurological condition known as encephalocele, continued to increase in size. Her parents worried that it would cause her shyness as she aged, for she is a playful girl who enjoys time with her friends.

The encephalocele is painful if hit accidentally, and it interferes with her vision. Aye Aye was referred to our medical partner, where she underwent surgical repair on October 30, 2016.

Aye Aye’s parents have taken time off work to care for their daughter. Now, they need help to fund her healthcare costs.

Of the future, Aye Aye’s father says, “Aye Aye is a very intelligent child, and she will do well with an education.”
