Sick Babies fundraising campaign Salone

Too many sick babies are coming up, since we succeeded on the few cases we raised funds for, many are coming up daily and it is overwhelming, but in a bid to give these children a second chance in life, we are begging you all to please donate so we can save more lives, currently there are 4 children who are all in critical health state and needs urgent support. 

We were able to raise funds for baby Mustapha, Baby Mariama, Carlos  and Baby Marian. We are now trying to raise funds for Badamasi, Aminata, Abu and Mustapha. Please let us help in any little way we can as the health care services in Sierra Leone is not equipped to handle the emerging cases and these children are coming from the provinces and from very poor families. See Stories for the current children we are raising funds for below. 


Case 1

2 years old Badamasie Samura is suffering from Wilm’s Tumor. Both his kidney has been affected and the left one more affected.

On the 1st October 2018 the mother discovered that he is urinating blood and they immediately rushed with him to the PCMH (Cottage Hospital) where he was examined and as the parents were not very satisfied they decided to move to Emergency. It was at emergency they referred us to Connaught Hospital where Badamasie was admitted for 2 weeks. During this two weeks, we carried out CT scan and abdominal scan. After this scan that was led by our only Paediatric Surgeon Dr. Aiah Lebbie confirmed that one of the kidneys is packed and the other is having Tumor.

Currently Badamasie needs a total of $16,000USD we have reached out to the Ministry of Health and Sanitation to request for medical assistance, but even if government is able to provide some support they will not provide all, so we are reaching out to the general public seek your donation. As always nothing is too small, let us donate to save life.


Case 2

16 years old Aminata Marah is currently suffering from left Orbit Tumor, her face is swell now in a scary way, she requires a 3 cycles of chemotherapy before her surgery and another 3 cycles of chemotherapy after her surgery to help deal with this situation thoroughly. She hailed from a village called Dundukor in Koinadugu District. Her ailment started 2009 and in 2011 Mercy Ship did the first surgery on her, but there was not much of chemotherapy being done, and in 2012 again it resurfaced again and has got to a scary state again, in 2017 things became more worrying as she had to drop out of school at high school. Aminata is always crying that she wants to go back to school and if she is cured she will study hard to be a medical doctor.


Aminata is currently suffering and needs urgent help, to fix this condition, for both the surgery and the chemotherapy it will cost $26,000 USD


Case 3

 
3-year-old Jeremiah Koroma was born without an anus, he has hirschsprung’s disease which is a congenital anomaly or birth defect. In 2018 he was operated (colostomy) to create a stoma which is what he is currently using. Basically the intestine was diverted to another direction and  hole was created so that he can excr36919048_1552931243764850_r.jpegete through the created hole or stoma. Jeremiah is suffering daily and is in serious pain. Please lets donate to save him. The Max Super Speciality in India has gave us a discounted rate of $ 8,000 USD for the surgery fee to do the reversal and give him back an anus so he can be a normal child.

 
Case 4

14 years old Mustapha Jawad Tunis is suffering from Spina Bafidia (a birth defect where there is incomplete closing of the backbone and membranes around the spinal cord) he does not have anus and had defunct legs and sexual organ.

It is worth indicating that Treatment can help, but this condition can't be cured fully.

Mustapha was born with this condition, but has been managing until recent times when he could not even hold on to his urine anymore and had to drop out of school. To provide this treatment it will cost a total of $ 20,000 USD
