about Jarred's recovery.

June 11, 2019

Jarred is an infant from Kenya. He 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, Jarred 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 Jarred. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 12. Hopefully, the repair of this condition will allow Jarred to grow up healthy.

Jarred’s mother says, “My prayer is to have my son treated and grow upright with less medical issues.”
