Three weeks ago, Saviour, a beautiful little girl, was born. She had a leaking cystic mass on her lower spinal region. Due to the risks associated with Saviour’s condition, her mother was advised to seek for specialized treatment immediately. According to her mother, Saviour sleeps a lot and feeds fairly well.
Saviour’s mother is a college student while her father neglected the responsibility of taking care of their baby. Saviour and her mother solely depend on Saviour’s grandparents who are subsistence farmers. The family lives in a three roomed house in the Western region of Kenya. Saviour’s mother is worried that she cannot raise funds for her daughter’s treatment.
If not treated, Saviour is at a risk of getting infection and developing tethered cord that can lead to either Scoliosis and/or Kyphosis. She is also at a risk of lower limbs paralysis. Fortunately, we can help prevent these complications and fund the treatment Saviour needs - a spina bifida closure, which will cost $805.
Saviour’s treatment will reduce the risk of infection as well as development of tethered cord and risk of lower limbs paralysis.
“I feel sad that my daughter has this condition,” her mother shares. “Any help accorded towards her treatment will be a great blessing to us.”
