Meet one-year-old Therrick! Therrick lives with his mother in Haiti.

Therrick has a cleft-lip, a condition in which his mouth and lips formed abnormally while he was developing. His condition causes fever and flu-like symptoms, and also affects his ability to eat normally. Without surgery to correct his lips, Therrick will continue to have difficulty eating, flu-like symptoms, and probably face social stigma as he grows older.

Therrick’s mom is hopeful that our hospital partner can fix Therrick’s cleft lip. Meeting other families who have been affected by this condition has given her strength. She works hard, but as Therrick’s sole supporter, she does not have enough income to support the cost of surgery for her son.

For $960, doctors can perform a corrective surgery on Therrick. This surgery will allow him to eat normally again and move on with his young life. Let’s help Therrick get the surgery he needs!
