Jofael underwent hydrocephalus treatment.
Jofael had been scheduled to have surgery but due an infection he developed, he began getting regular seizures, vomiting, and fevers which continued to become worse, so the medical team put him on a medication to control his seizures and fevers. When he became stable, surgery could move forward.
We are so happy to share that his surgery went well and was successful. Jofael is now stable and no longer having seizures. Through this treatment, Jofael has been healed from the pain and discomfort he was going through due to his hydrocephalus condition. This treatment has also helped protect Jofael’s brain from being damaged due to the high-pressure build-up. He is showing good progress and recovering well.
Jofaels’ mother shared with us, “Thank you very much for coming in and helping fund my son’s treatment cost, which we couldn’t afford. God bless you all and add you more.”

Jofael is a four-month-old baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four children. Jofael’s parents are small scale farmers who live in a remote village, where they lack access to good health services.
Jofael 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, he has been experiencing fevers and vomiting. Without treatment, Jofael will experience severe physical and developmental delays.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,300 to cover the cost of surgery for Jofael that will treat his hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 9th and will drain the excess fluid from Jofael’s brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve his quality of life. With proper treatment, Jofael will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy.
Jofael’s mother shared, “Money has been a challenge, and our son’s condition is worsening. We appreciate any support you can provide us.”
