Chrestin is a baby from Ethiopia. His father is a civil servant, and his mother takes care of him.
Chrestin was born with a congenital anomaly called bladder extrophy. This means his urinary system does not function normally and he is exposed to infections. He underwent corrective surgery three days after he was born, but the procedure was not successful.
Chrestin is now scheduled to undergo another corrective bladder surgery on February 5. His family needs help raising $1,500 to fund the procedure.
His mother says, “Our income is now only from my husband’s salary and this is very limited on our basic need. We are living in a rented house. Our baby had surgery before but we were informed that it failed. Now we can’t afford this medical bill for these reasons.”
