May 25, 2018

Naserian is a beautiful baby girl from Tanzania. She has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of her condition, Naserian has been experiencing an increasing head circumference. Without treatment, Naserian will experience severe physical and developmental delays.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,238 to cover the cost of surgery for Naserian that will treat her hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 28 and will drain the excess fluid from Naserian’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Naserian will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl.

Naserian’s mother says, “Please help my daughter get this treatment as I want her to be a normal child.”
