Rakib is a lively two-year-old boy who has an umbilical hernia that has steadily increased in size. His mother bought him into hospital as she noticed that it was beginning to cause him discomfort. Our surgeons assessed him and confirmed that surgery was his only option. Hernia’s can prove fatal if complications set in as emergency surgery is needed but many patients such as Rakib live in remote areas and have little chance of reaching medical care in time.
Every penny donated will cover the costs of the surgery including medical supplies, the actual surgery and his stay in hospital.
