June 9, 2021

Fenet is a 1-year-old child from Ethiopia. She is a beautiful baby girl with two older siblings and she loves to play with them and their parents. Her dad is a daily labourer with an income not large enough to meet the family’s needs and medical costs.

Fenet was born with an anorectal malformation, which is a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. Children with this condition have an imperforate anus, or an absence of opening where it should be. Due to this condition, she developed bowel obstruction and underwent an emergency colostomy. Post-surgery, Fenet has had multiple issues with her colostomy care and experienced associated complications. As a result, she cannot pass stool in a normal way. Fenet’s condition has taken its toll on her mom and dad, and the whole process has been very emotional and difficult for them to go through. Her family appeals for help for Fenet to be treated.

Fenet is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on June 10th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Fenet’s procedure and care. After her recovery, Fenet will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Her mom shared, “I hope my child will heal and God is able.”
