Moise received surgery to treat his hydrocephalus and drain the excess fluid from his brain.

The operation was a success!

Moise’s doctor tells us, “The treatment is very effective for Moise; he is very happy and excited to go back to school. Moise now feels comfortable and his family can expect to see him growing up with a good health situation.

“Moise only had some pain on his head after the surgery, but now he is okay and happy. He is a very intelligent little boy,” says Moise’s family.
