Children in the Philippines who live in extreme poverty lack access to quality healthcare. They are often denied assistance and are unable to afford necessities to improve their quality of life.
Ethan is 8 months old and lives with his parents in the Philippines. Ethan has hydrocephalus and spina bifida. He has a meningocele - A meningocele is a birth defect where there is a sac protruding from the spinal column. The sac includes spinal fluid, but does not contain neural tissue.
His father is a carpenter, earning approx US per month. Unfortunately, he has been unable to work since March due to COVID restrictions. The family is really struggling to provide for their sons additional needs.
We hope surgery will be possible for Ethan in the future. But for now, we want to provide him with the essentials to keep him fed and comfortable. We are raising funds to purchase formula, diapers, vitamins, medicines and distilled water. Can you help?
