Godsgift is a baby from Kenya. To earn money, his father works on construction sites and his mother mends clothes. They have six other children as well.

When Godsgift was born, he was diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition that causes cerebrospinal fluid to accumulate in the brain. He was referred to our medical partner’s care center for treatment. Without treatment, he will experience developmental delays.

Fortunately, Godsgift is scheduled to undergo brain surgery on January 29. The procedure will cost $634.
