Ali is a 1-month-old infant from Ethiopia and is a beautiful baby boy. He has six siblings. He loves to play with his mom and siblings and is exclusively fed breast milk. His father is a day laborer and earns limited income which is sufficient for their family’s daily needs, but not more than that. His mom is a house wife and she raises her children full-time.
Ali 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.
Ali is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on April 2nd. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Ali’s procedure and care.
After his recovery, Ali will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
His parents shared, “We hope the operation will bring him good health. We were very troubled because of our financial constraint.”
