Netsanet underwent multi-stage anorectal treatment.

Netsanet underwent a successful PSARP procedure to treat her congenital malformation on August 13th, 2019 and her colostomy closure was completed in March, 2020. She is now passing stool in a normal way. This treatment will help her lead a normal and higher-quality life in the years ahead.

Netsanet’s mother said, “I am so thankful for this operation and for this opportunity that saved my child’s life. I am thankful for this hospital, for the staff, and for its amazing service. God is good who made all this possible. I am happy for her result.”

Netsanet is a young student from Ethiopia. She 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.

Netsanet is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on July 23. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Netsanet’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Netsanet will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Her mother says, “I can’t afford the medical bill. We managed to come to hospital through the support of another organization.”
