Muslim is a 2-year-old child from Ethiopia. He is a beautiful baby boy who loves sweets and rice. He also loves to play with a ball. Muslim has one brother and one sister. He loves to play with his mom and siblings. His father is a farmer and his income is very limited and insufficient for the family’s daily needs. He also does hard labor work to support the family. His mom is a housewife and she raises her children full time.

Muslim 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.

Muslim is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on May 5th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Muslim’s procedure and care.

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

Muslim’s mom said, “I hope he will be operated and heal completely.”

Brian

Brian is a 4-year-old playful preschooler from Kenya. Brian’s mother is a single parent from a very humble background. When Brian was born with scrotal swelling, his parents separated because they believed it was a curse. When he was a baby, Brian was taken to the hospital with complaints of a congenital right scrotal swelling. A repair was done at a different hospital when he was 20 months old but did not cure his condition. His condition has gradually persisted prompting his teacher and grandmother to take him to Watsi Medical Partner's Care Center Kapsowar Hospital. Brian has discomfort while walking. He also has pain on micturition which has always affected his general well-being. He has been raised largely by his older grandmother who hadn't taken him for treatment and never spoke about Brian’s condition. It was not until his class teacher noticed a swelling when he informed well-wishers in the village and he was brought to the hospital to be seen. Brian was diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia after undergoing several lab tests and an ultrasound. Brian is a lovely boy who needs all our help so that he can be happy just like other children. Fortunately, on March 16th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $384 to fund Brian's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably. Brian’s grandmother says, “I am happy that his condition can be treated surgically. Brian needs to be like other children and play with friends without stigmatization.”
