Allan is an adorable two-year-old boy from the Philippines. Allan loves to sing nursery rhymes and listen to music. Allan’s father works as a welder in Saudi Arabia, while his mother stays at home to look after their children. Allan’s father’s income is only enough to support their basic needs, the family works hard to shoulder Allan’s medical treatment.
Allan was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. Allan needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction. Allan is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on April 4th. Our medical partner, World Surgical Foundation Philippines, is helping Allan’s family raise $1,279 to cover the total cost of Allan’s procedure and care. After his recovery, Allan will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
Allan’s mother shared, “This surgery is important for us. Through this, Allan will have a chance to grow as a normal kid - no more discomforts and pain. This will also ease our financial burden to buy his colostomy supplies. WSFP and WATSI will be of really great help to us, and so we’re grateful to them!”
