Angela is a two-month-old baby girl from Kenya. Angela’s father sells brooms to make an income, and her mother stays at home to care for her.
Angela was born with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess fluid builds up in the brain. If left untreated, her condition can cause increased intracranial pressure, delayed brain development, and permanent brain damage.
On July 17, Angela will undergo brain surgery to drain the excess fluid from her head. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $685 to cover the total cost of Angela’s procedure and care.
“We want to have our child lead a normal life. We wish to see her grow as a normal child,” Angela’s father says.
