Ali underwent anorectal corrective surgery.

Our medical partner has just shared that Ali completed his multistage treatment. He underwent successful PSARP on the 6th of August followed by a successful colostomy closure on the 10th of December. Fortunately, he is now able to pass stool normally. He is no longer at risk of colostomy leaks and infection.

Ali’s mum said, “We are very happy for the surgery. And we are very thankful for all who helped us in the hospital - They took good care of us and the staff were kind. It is our hope he can lead a quality life and attain school.”
