Seetotaw is an 18-month-old living in Ethiopia with his mother and father. His father supports the family as a traditional basket weaver, while his mother stays home to care for him. Seetotaw is a happy infant who loves music and dance.

Seetotaw was born with a congenital condition called bladder exstrophy, which means that his bladder pokes through the outside of his abdomen. The exposure of his bladder puts him at heightened risk of injury and infection and requires constant care. Doctors have recommended that he undergo surgery to repair the bladder abnormality. His parents are worried that without the surgery their son will continue to require constant medical care and be stigmatized in the community.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to fund Seetotaw’s surgery. His parents are hopeful that this surgery will allow him to to have a happy and healthy childhood.
