Miracle is a seven-month-old baby and the first child born to her young parents. Miracle’s mother and the father both work in a hotel, with her mom working as a receptionist and her dad as a hotel attendant. They own a two-room mud house for shelter and are in the early stages of developing their family.
One week after Miracle was born, she developed swelling at the back of her head. The mass started out small but has slowly been increasing in size. When Miracle was six months old, her parents took her to the hospital and doctors recommend surgery to heal her condition. However, her parents were unable to raise enough money at the time for the procedure. Miracle has become uncomfortable sleeping due to the growing mass, and doctors say the swelling is likely to increase in size or become septic (infected) if it’s not removed.
Miracle’s family traveled to visit our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, for treatment. On June 3rd, surgeons are scheduled to remove the mass. Now, Miracle’s family needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure that will greatly improve her quality of life.
Miracle’s mother says, “My daughter’s condition is worrying. I pray that she may look normal again through surgery so that she may live a better life in the future.”
