Daniel, born only 11 days ago in Kenya, lives with his parents and older sibling. Daniel’s father works as a carpenter to support his family, and his mother tends to the crops they grow on a small plot of land.
Daniel was born with spina bifida, an incomplete closing of the spinal column, leaving him with an open mass on his back. Left untreated, he is likely to develop various infections, malformations of the spine, and continued discomfort. Daniel’s mother hopes to see her son receive the help he needs, as she says that all she wants “is to see my son well. I want to see Daniel live a healthy life like my other child.”
For $980, we can provide Daniel with a surgery that would close the spina bifida and greatly reduce his chances of developing scoliosis and infection. Let us provide Daniel the opportunity at the healthy childhood that his family dreams of!
