Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied assistance.
Meet Lord Kylle.
A desperate mother reached out to our Maya's Hope Facebook page this week and asked for help for her son.
Her child was born with a frontal encephalocele* and there is no hope for surgery. And if they could find a doctor willing to perform the surgery, it is impossible to pay for it. His father is a driver and laborer earning roughly $98 USD a month for a family of 6.
This child's frontal encephalocele requires TWO surgeries. The surgeon said that he could do it in one surgery, but it's too risky.
And we don't take risks with the lives of our cutie pies.
It would be a 2 stage repair, which would mean fixing the skull defect first then discharging the child. Then after 2-3 months, the surgeon would fix the facial pouch.
That's where we all come in - Maya's Hope and YOU.
The MRI and other medical needs is $450 USD.
The two surgeries would be $7000 USD.
Total needed to fund this life-saving surgery: $7450.
The family lives approximately 7 hours away from Manila, so they will have to make the long trip to Manila to get this surgery.
If you recall last year, we did the same surgery for a little one named Jake. We had to fly him and his father from Visaya just to get surgery in Manila.
These families do not have hope where they are, and will sacrifice everything to help their children.
We work quickly - with your help. Share, tell your friends, these children's lives are dependent on you.
Thank you always.
