Our first Emergency Surgery in months!
Nino Thaddeus has Dandy-Walker Syndrome and hydrocephalus. He needs urgent surgery to place a shunt.
We started reaching out to families in the Philippines who were in lockdown and we ordered supplies to get children through this difficult period. Nino received formula, diapers and other items, with your support.
Last Tuesday, as Manila opened up, Nino was finally able to go to the hospital for assessment.
After our neurosurgeon reviewed his results, he said that Nino needs urgent surgery.
We need to move quickly and raise $6177 to fully fund his surgery and medical needs.
(Dandy-Walker Syndrome is a congenital brain malformation involving the cerebellum (an area of the back of the brain that coordinates movement) and the fluid-filled spaces around it.)
