Meet Godon, a sweet three-year-old girl who lives in Ethiopia. Godon lives with bladder exstrophy, a very rare congenital anomaly that causes part of her bladder to exist outside her body. As a result, Godon’s kidney leaks urine directly onto her body.

Godon grew up in Somalia, where her parents spent all their money trying to find treatment. When they did not find any help, they moved to Ethiopia. Godon’s father says, “My daughter is a bright young girl, and I hope that she will grow up to be a doctor.”

For $1,500, we can help Godon receive surgery that will use part of her intestine to form a new bladder. She will be able to maintain better bladder control and prevent urine leakage. Let’s help Godon live a healthy, normal life!
