Zion is an adorable four-month-old baby boy from the Philippines. Despite being so young, Zion loves interacting with people and already responds when his name is called. Zion’s mother is a full-time mom, while his father is a contract-of-service worker. Zion’s father’s income helps to sustain their family’s daily needs.
In March, Zion’s family brought him to the hospital as he has skin tags on his body and they were concerned for his future health and development. This condition can be severe, especially at his age as it may cause discomfort that leads to itching, wounds, and infections. On May 4th, Zion is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition. Our medical partner, World Surgical Foundation Philippines, is helping Zion’s parents raise $1,196 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. After recovery, Zion will no longer have multiple skin tags or be at risk of developing related health complications in the future.
“Once this surgery is done, we don’t have to worry about his condition, and we can focus on taking care of Zion,” his father shared. “Thank you so much World Surgical Foundation Philippines and Watsi for your help. May you help other people in need like us,” he added.
