One-year-old Daniel urgently needs an operation to correct an umbilical hernia. Apart from the pain and discomfort this causes, doctors are worried that if left untreated the hernia could cause stunted growth in Daniel. As well as this, complication from hernias, such as when the hernia becomes strangulated, can be fatal if emergency treatment is not sought in time. Daniels mother is desperate for him to have the surgery but simply cannot afford it which is why she visited our clinic in Uganda. All money raised for Daniel will go towards the full cost of his treatment which includes the surgery, his stay in hospital as well as transport to and from the hospital.
