Gudise underwent corrective surgery.

Gudise underwent successful PSARP on the 11th of June and Colostomy closure on the 17th of Sep. She is now able to pass stool and is no longer at risk of infection due to colostomy.

Gudise mother said, “We couldn’t do this by our own. We are so happy and thankful. And we are thankful for our donors. We are thankful for this hospital, its service and its staff. Now the surgery is over, we believe our baby can lead a normal life as any other kid.”

Gudise is a baby from Ethiopia. She loves to crawl and play with other babies. Gudise 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.

Gudise is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on June 11. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Gudise’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Gudise will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Brian

Brian is a 12 year old boy living with his parents and three older siblings. His father is a motorcycle taxi driver earning a living whenever he can from the limited work, while his mother stays at home to care for the children. When Brian was about nine months old, his parents noticed that he had general body weakness. He was diagnosed with rickets and additional medical conditions, which have caused a delay in many of his milestones as he continues to grow. Brian's physical coordination is limited, and he suffers from a profound hearing loss, for which his doctors have recommended hearing aids. But hearing aids are too expensive for his family to afford, so Brian currently attends a special school, which can accommodate his hearing loss. The doctors have assured Brian's parents that with hearing aids, Brian would be able to attend an ordinary school near their home. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,171 to cover the costs of the hearing aids and the fitting, which is scheduled to take place on June 17th at AIC Kijabe Hospital. With his hearing restored, Brian will be able to attend a regular school, and to interact more fully with the world around him. Brian's father says: “Brian is unable to pick up voices and this is affecting his studies. He shifted to a special school because of his condition. His doctors say that he can hear well if fitted with hearing aids. If he gets this medical attention, he can join his colleagues in a normal school.“
