Salma Kaoneka received treatment for her imperforate anus.

“When I reflect where my baby came from, her condition, and how she is now I am out of words to express my gratitude for the huge financial support for my daughter’s medical treatment,” her mother shares. “I thank God for all of you who have helped my baby get to where she is now. She is happier, easy to keep her clean and I trust that her future will be brighter because she will be able to go to school.”

“Salma is doing very well,” her doctor adds. “She had an imperforate anus and undergone multiple surgeries. There were some complications after her second surgery, but in the end all went well. Her final surgery which was colostomy closure was done successfully. Salma is eating well and is now able to pass stool normally. She continues with potty training everyday.”

Meet Salma, a one-year old girl from Tanzania. Salma is her mother’s only child. Her father left the family when he saw that Salma has a disability.

Salma has an imperforate anus, which means that the opening of her anus is blocked.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), reports: “Salma is currently passing stool through her vagina. To develop as a girl, teenager and a woman she needs to have this defect corrected.”

For $1500, AMHF can perform a 3-stage surgery to fix Salma’s condition. The surgery will allow Salma to pass stool normally, and develop without complications.

“This treatment will give me the chance to improve our lives,” shares Salma’s mother.
