8 Weeks Old Baby Suffering from Encephalocele Needs Help!
Baby Mariama Sesay is an 8 weeks old baby who after few weeks of her birth, her mother observed that she was having difficulties in breathing and after almost 5 weeks it was getting more complicating as the baby was crying all night long as she was not able to sleep at night.
As this continues, the mother decided to take the baby to the hospital in Bo City, Southern Province of Sierra Leone. After some scans,the doctors in Bo City advised that they should visit a brain specialist who then diagnosed that baby Mariama of suffering from encephalocele. Encephalocele, sometimes known as cranium bifidum, is a neural tube defect characterized by sac-like protrusions of the brain and the membranes that cover it through openings in the skull. These defects are caused by failure of the neural tube to close completely during fetal development.
The condition of Baby Mariama is getting increasingly worrying as she is almost always crying in pain, thus the pains prevent her from sleeping at night.
We have been able to reach out to doctors in India at Max Super Speciality Hospital, they have confirmed that they are able to fix this condition, however her mother is a young unemployed lady and the father is a poor auto mechanic.
The hospital administration gave us a discounted price of $10,000 USD for the surgery to fix her brain back into the skull. We are therefore kindly seeking donation from individuals, groups, organizations, private companies and government.
