Kyle underwent surgery for her birth condition.

Kyle’s surgery was done successfully and her doctors were very happy with the outcome. As she fully recovers, a final colostomy closure surgery will be done and her family is looking forward to a healthier road ahead for their sweet little girl.

Kyle’s mother says, “I was really looking forward to this surgery to be done and I’m grateful that it happened with your help.”

Kyle is a beautiful one-year-old girl. She’s the last born in a family of two children and her older sibling is in third grade. Her mother is a single mom who is raising her kids on her own. She earns a living trading second-hand clothes in their neighborhood.

Kyle’s mom shared that they are signed up for a national health insurance program, but haven’t been able to make the monthly premium payments so the insurance is not able to cover expenses like surgery. Kyle has beendiagnosed with a rectovestibular fistula and had a colostomy performed at Kenyatta National Hospital last year. She has now come to our medical partner’s care center for the follow-up surgery that she needs for her birth condition. She has needed this surgery for a while but the waiting list has been long at the other hospital and their family could not afford the cost of surgery.

Kyle’s mother says, “My young girl deserves to grow up like other kids. She needs this treatment.”
