5-month-old Sharif’s operation to remove a hernia was a success! Complications from hernia’s, especially one as large as the one Sharif had,
can easily arise such as part of the bowel becoming strangulated. Such complications can be fatal as many patients wouldn’t be able to reach the emergency surgery in time. Hernia’s are typical of the low-cost, high-impact operations we fund and are ranked as one of the most cost-effective health interventions in developing countries. A massive thank you to Anna whose fundraising efforts covered the costs of Sharif’s surgery.
