Sumayah.'S STORY

Twitter Facebook

1-year-old Sumayah has an umbilical hernia. Umbilical hernia’s are common in the countries where we work and can be fatal if left untreated as they can become incarcerated (trapped outside of the hernia wall) or strangulated (a section becomes pinched or twisted and cut off from the blood supply) causing nausea, vomiting and pain.

Sumayah’s hernia is large and if complications were to set in emergency surgery would be needed. However, because they live far from any medical facilities it is unlikely that if complications where to arise that they would reach medical care in time.

The cost of surgery can have a catastrophic impact on a families finances and many get into debt and further poverty in order to pay for medical treatment. We’re hoping we can cover the costs of Sumayah’s surgery so her mother can avoid getting into debt that she wouldn’t be able afford.

 

The operation takes under and hour and recovery is swift with most children able to return home the same day.
