Ashley is a toddler from Kenya. She is an only child. Ashley’s mother is a housewife, and her father is a motorbike taxi driver.

Ashley has been diagnosed with encephalocoele, a type of neural tube defect in which brain tissues and overlying membranes protrude through openings in the skull. Encephalocoele usually results from a failure of the neural tube to completely close during fetal development. Without treatment, Ashley is at risk of developmental delays, brain damage, or premature death.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $929 to fund encephalocoele repair surgery for Ashley. The procedure is scheduled to take place on August 15. Hopefully, the repair of this condition will allow Ashley to grow up healthy.
