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.
Xian is a one-year-old from the Philippines. He lives with his parents and his maternal grandparents. Xian was born with hydrocephalus. His father works at a car wash. His salary is variable due to the pandemic and weather conditions. His parents are very young but are doing their best to care for their son.
Xian is in need of surgery as soon as possible to place a shunt for his hydrocephalus. His head has been growing in size. His parents feel hopeless as they cannot afford the surgery he needs.
Can you help us provide Xian with this essential surgery?
