Esbon underwent urgent surgery for his leg.

Esbon’s surgery was a success! This has been a big relief for Esbon’s family. The surgeons were able to release the band on his left leg and begin casting on his right foot so Esbon can walk without difficulty in the future.

His mother was so grateful to see him doing well and shared, “The state of my baby got me worried. I thought his limb would be amputated but am grateful to God He saw us through everything.”

Esbon is a three-day-old baby and the fourth born in a family of four. His parents are both farmers, and also do casual jobs in order to sustain their lives and those of their children. Esbon’s mother hopes that he gets well soon so they may go back home to be with her other children.

Esbon was born with the umbilical cord tied around the calf muscle of his left lower limb, sustaining a wound around it that was deep. He was also born with a congenital condition of the feet, with missing digits in both lower limbs and the left upper limb. His mom is worried that he feels a lot of pain.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Esbon receive treatment. On March 10th, surgeons at their care center will perform a surgery to release the amniotic construction band with a skin graft. Now, their family needs help to fund this $1,478 procedure.

Esbon’s mother shared, “Kindly help my son so that he can be relieved from pain and be able to live normally in the future.”
