Victor is a newborn baby and the youngest child in a family of six children. His parents are both casual laborers who sell groceries for a living.
When Victor and his mom arrived home from the hospital after his birth, he was crying often and his mother and aunt became concerned. They examined him and noticed that his stomach was swollen and he was not able to pass his stool. Upon examination, he was scheduled for an urgent colostomy surgery the next day.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH) is helping Victor to receive treatment. On August 11th, he will undergo surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $1,152 to fund Victor’s life-saving procedure and care.
Victor’s mother shared, “Victor’s condition is a big blow to us. It’s new to us and what’s worrying is that he cannot survive without surgery being done and we are not in a position to cater for that.”
