Esther is a seven-month-old from Haiti who lives with hydrocephalus, a life-threatening condition where fluid accumulates in her skull. She needs surgery to drain the fluid, get her out of harm’s way, and allow her family to resume its normal routine.

Esther’s mother loves her, but she is worried about her ability to care for her. “I face a lot of problems with my child because she cries a lot and often,” she says. “I cannot leave her, even for a moment, to do my daily tasks - to cook, do the washing or go out to do other activities.”

For only $1,260, we can fund a surgery to drain the fluid from Esther’s brain and potentially save her life. Let’s help get her healthy!
