Seth underwent life-changing surgery for his birth condition.

Seth had a successful surgery! He was admitted in the hospital after his treatment so his doctors could monitor him closely and he is now back home. He will have one more surgery after he recovers fully from his first surgery. His mother has restored hope for the road ahead and that he is on his way to better health.

Seth’s mother says, “We are very relieved and happy now that Seth has been treated.”

Seth is a sweet baby boy. He is the only child in his family and his parents separated before he was born. His mother moved back to his grandparent’s place to raise him with support.

A few months ago, Seth’s mother went abroad to work as a domestic helper. Seth is being cared for by his grandmother who does laundry for her neighbors to earn a living, while his grandfather sells cereals in a local market.

Seth’s mother noticed that he could not pass stool three days after he was born. It was discovered that Seth’s lower digestive system had not developed fully and he received surgery to treat this congenital anal malformation. Later additional scans were to be done but Seth’s mother did not have any extra money at that time. She went back home, gathered some funds, and brought Seth back to the facility a few months later. A community health volunteer referred his family to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH) as his family was having a challenging time to cover the cost of his treatment and he needs a anorectoplasty surgery to repair his digestive system. Our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) is requesting $743 to cover the costs.

Seth’s grandmother says, “The past one year has been very stressful for us but we hope that it will be well.”
