Nibleti is an 8-month-old baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of two. Nibleti’s parents are small-scale farmers who depend entirely on what they harvest from their land.
Nibleti has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of his condition, Nibleti has been experiencing an increasing head circumference. Without treatment, Nibleti will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $802 to cover the cost of surgery for Nibleti that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 15th and will drain the excess fluid from Nibleti’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Nibleti will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
Nibleti’s mother says, “Please help us so that our son is able to get this surgery, he is suffering and we are unable to afford the cost.”
