Meet Dinkmekar, a two-year-old girl and only child to her parents. Dinkmekar was born without an anal opening and cannot pass stool normally. As a result, she experiences pain and difficulty since she must pass stool through the vagina. Dinkmekar will continue to experience pain if this condition is left untreated.
In order to treat Dinkmekar, our medical partner can perform an anoplasy, in which the anus will be moved to an appropriate place within the muscles. “We expect after surgery, Dinkmekar will be able to pass stool normally. She will grow up healthy and normally,” explains our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).
Dinkemar’s father works as a farmer with very little income, and, to support her daughter’s condition, Dinkmekar’s mother stays at home. They are unable to raise the funds for the surgery.
Dinkmekar’s mother dreams of “seeing my baby stay happy all day without being in pain.” For $1500, we can provide Dinkmekar with this life-saving surgery and help both her and her parents lead healthy and happy lives!
