J-Well is a 6-year-old girl from the Philippines. She was born with an imperforate anus. (Imperforate anus is a defect in which the opening to the anus is missing or blocked. The anus is the opening to the rectum through which stools leave the body.)
J-Well has waited years for her surgical repair. Her family simply cannot afford it.
Her bowel has started to bulge out from her stoma. Her family cannot afford colostomy supplies so they have to use plastic bags and tape instead.
J-Well needs this surgery as soon as possible. Her quality of life is currently extremely poor. She is uncomfortable and the risk of infection is very high.
We need your help to raise the funds needed for her surgery as quickly as we can!
