Patient profile (8/24): Asaye

Asaye is a 15-year-old who graciously gave up his position in our last group to Ghana due to another patient who was in more urgent need. He is from Gambella, three days from Addis Ababa by bus, where his dad is a farmer. As a top student in his 6th-grade class, he dreams of becoming a doctor. Asaye has severe congenital scoliosis and will need traction followed by complex surgery to reshape his spine.

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 Asaye!

Patient profile (7/24): Menbere

Menbere is a 22-year-old orphan who started spine surgery for her TB kyphosis in Addis Ababa last year. It had to be curtailed early due to lack of blood. She was partly paralyzed afterwards, but has gotten somewhat better. She is in chronic pain, and needs revision of her surgery.
