Sumeya is a baby girl from Ethiopia who loves music. She also loves sweets and playing with her mom. She is her parents’ first child, and her mom is a housewife while her dad is a teacher in a mosque. They all live together in his parents’ house, who help support them with their basic needs.
Sumeya was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.
Sumeya is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on April 20th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Sumeya’s procedure and care.
After her recovery, Sumeya will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing serious health complications in the future.
Her mom said “ It is my hope that my baby will heal and get in to school.”
