Firomsa is a toddler from Ethiopia. He loves to play and laugh with toys. His parents are traditional farmers.
Firomsa was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.
Firomsa is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on November 29. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Firomsa’s procedure and care.
After his recovery, Firomsa will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
His mother says, “We wanted to pay for his care but we are not able to do it.”
