Biskut received successful surgery and treatment to correct his anorectal malformation.

“Baby Biskut had a successful procedure to develop a new anus for passing stool on December 8th, 2015. Biskut had a successful colostomy closure on the 18th of February. Now he can make stool in a normal way and can enjoy a healthy and bright future,” reports our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation.

Biskut’s father said: “My child is now recovering and doing very well. I am very grateful for the excellent work that has been done for my child in this hospital. I thank the sponsors who covered the bill very much.”

This little guy is Biskut, an eight-month-old boy from Ethiopia.

“Biskut was born with an open anus and he suffered from bowel obstruction as a newborn,” explains our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “He survived after the colostomy he received when he was a week old, and since that time he has recovered from both the obstruction and the surgery itself.”

Due to his anorectal malformation, Biskut has been passing stool through his colostomy bag ever since the first procedure. Because colostomy bags only work as temporary solutions, this has caused some health complications for Biskut and has made life difficult for his parents, both of whom are young subsistence farmers.

For $1,500, AMHF will surgically create a new anus for Biskut, allowing him to pass stool normally. This procedure will make life easier on Biskut and his parents.

“Biskut is happy little one, apart from his colostomy problem,” AMHF shares. “Right now his parents have no specific future dream except that their child gets well.”
