Furtu is an infant from Ethiopia. She loves to play with her mother.
Furtu was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.
Furtu is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on December 4. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Furtu’s procedure and care.
After her recovery, Furtu will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
Her father says, “We came here after being informed by a relative that we might receive help. It is our hope that we can get the surgery for our baby and to see our child healthy.”
