Shakir is a cute and charming boy who loves people. He enjoys discovering new things and eating sweets and rice.
Shakir has been diagnosed with Hirschprung’s disease, a condition that affects the large intestine and causes uncomfortable symptoms. He underwent a previous treatment, which only solved the problem temporarily. On December 27, he underwent a corrective surgery at our medical partner’s care center. During this surgery, doctors removed the diseased part of Shakir’s intestine.
Shakir’s mother is a single mother who is unemployed. Her brother supports the family, but he cannot afford healthcare. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 in funding.
