September 23, 2019

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.”
