Baby Meseret underwent hernia surgery.

Baby Meseret surgery proceeded successfully and he recovers well from the operation. This treatment will prevent bowel obstruction and death, pain and discomfort.

Baby Meseret’s mother said, “We are happy that the surgery performed effectively. He is now doing so well. We are feeling peace. We felt like he is born again. We were so stressed but after the surgery, the health of the child is very good. We like to support and appreciate this cause. It is our prayer for Watsi to reach more others as they reach for our problem. We like to thank Watsi for this help.”

Baby Meseret is an infant from Ethiopia. He is a cute baby who loves to see and play with his two sisters. The dad is a self-employed mechanic and his mom is a civil servant. The income of the family is too little to cover all the basic needs and education expenses of the family. Baby Meseret’s dad spent thousands of Ethiopian Birr treating Baby Meseret who was diagnosed with Pneumonia soon after birth and stayed in hospital for nine days.

Since birth, Baby Meseret has had an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on September 24th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $487 to fund Baby Meseret’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Baby Meseret’s dad said, “I am in a point that I can’t focus and work in my work place. One of my reasons for this stress is the financial insecurity me and my wife face at this moment. We were worried on how to get money for our baby’s necessary treatment. But once I heard of this help from Watsi I saw a glimpse of hope.”
