Patient profile (2/24): Mekdes

Mekdes is a 17-year-old girl from Butajira who is in the 8th grade. She is in the top of her class and wants to be a nurse. Her dad is a farmer. She has congenital scoliosis with hemivertebrae and rib deformities, and as a result, she has lost 64% of her lung function.

We recently sent 24 patients to Ghana for life-saving spine surgery, and we need to raise money in order to fund their treatment. Please donate today to help Mekdes!
