Brian is a baby from Kenya. The family lives in Makulani village in the Eastern region of Kenya.

Brian has been diagnosed with encephalocoele, a type of neural tube defect in which brain tissues and overlying membranes protrude through openings in the skull. Encephalocoele usually results from a failure of the neural tube to completely close during fetal development. Without treatment, Brian is at risk of developmental delays, brain damage, or premature death.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $929 to fund encephalocoele repair surgery for Brian. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 7. Hopefully, the repair of this condition will allow Brian to grow up healthy.

“I hope he gets treated,” says Brian’s mother.
