Abdulnasir completed his congenital anorectal multi-state treatment.

Abdulnasir underwent a PSARP on the 31st of October 2019, followed by a colostomy closure in February 2020. Both surgeries were successful and he is recovering well from the operation. He is now passing stool through the opening in a normal way. He can now lead a normal and higher-quality life.

“Our experience in the hospital was good,” Abdulnasir’s Dad said. “I am very happy for this surgery. The nurses and the doctors care for our child was so nice. Our sponsors, the doctors, and all who helped us in the process, I like to say thank you and I love you. God bless you all.”

Abdulnasir is a baby from Ethiopia. He is a cute baby boy. Abdulnasir has one brother and he loves to play ball with him. He also loves cars. Abdulnasir’s father is a labor worker and he earns low income which is insufficient for their daily food. His mother is a house wife and she raises her two children full time. Sometimes she tries and bakes bread to make some extra money.

Abdulnasir 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. Abdulnasir is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on October 24th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Abdulnasir’s procedure and care.

After his recovery, Abdulnasir will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Abdulnasir father said, “We are worried because our child is sick. And with his wound and with all his suffering we suffer a lot. We are so poor and we struggle even to feed our boys. We can’t afford the medical bills. We are living by the support of our mosque and men from our mosque. I don’t have land to farm so I am a day laborer.”
