Mohammed Ahmed'S STORY


Mohamed is a five month old baby boy from Mogadishu, Somalia, who was born with a defect of the spine known as myelomeningocele, the most serious type of spina bifida. Mohamed’s condition led to hydrocephalus, which is caused by a build up of fluid on the brain. The excess fluid puts pressure on his brain and has caused damage to his vision and hearing. Treatment for Mohamed’s condition is unavailable in Somalia so his mother brought him to the Edna Adan Hospital in Hargeisa, Somaliland (a distance of about 1500 km), where a surgeon was able to drain the fluid from his head. Mohamed’s family is extremely poor and lacks the resources to pay for his care. The cost of his treatment will cover a pre-operative screening, medical and surgical supplies, the installation of a shunt to drain fluid from Mohamed’s head, and full post-operative care.
