Loserian is a one-week-old baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in family of three children.

Loserian was born with spina bifida, a type of neural tube defect in which the spine does not properly close around the spinal cord. Without treatment, Loserian is at risk of lower-limb paralysis, infection of the exposed nervous tissue, development of tethered cord syndrome, and possible developmental delays.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $966 to cover the cost of Loserian’s spina bifida closure surgery. The procedure is scheduled to take place on January 3. This procedure will hopefully spare Loserian from the risks associated with his condition, instead allowing him to grow and develop along a healthy trajectory.

Loserian’s mother says, “Please help our son, we have no money to pay for the needed surgery which he needs urgently.”
