Supporting Baby Destiny through hydrocephalus | A life Changing Story
We are a group of medical volunteers trying to help a baby recover from a life challenging condition and we are trying to find way to do raise money required to help a baby recover from this condition. Baby destiny was born on 16/12/ 2017, In a few Months the parents realized that his head was enlarging but culturally believed that it was air that had accumulated and will be released if they used a warm cloth around his head daily. It’s by chance that a team of RHU Officials visited one of our health centers supported by Real health and that is the only health center where people can access free treatment in that area, this is where we met baby Destiny and told the mother that her baby had a condition called Hydrocephalus.
Hydrocephalus can be very serious, and even fatal, if left untreated. Fifty percent of those who fail to have their hydrocephalus treated will die. Those who are not treated and survive may have serious brain damage and physical disabilities. With treatment, hydrocephalus can be managed.
We recommended that she takes the baby for scans and test but she said she was aware she need to take the baby to the hospital but she was recommended to hospitals where she has to go with money (the money that she doesn’t have), and as friends we decided to run this campaign so that baby Destiny gets the help that he needs.
We have coordinated a team of surgeons and made appointments with the hospital were baby Destiny can be operated. We now seek your support to help us help baby destiny through all the required tests, and a surgical procedure to help him grow without disturbance.
Please help us help baby Destiny.
