2 YEAR OLD BOY WITH CONGENITAL DEFECT NEEDS HELP TO UNDERGO COMPLEX SURGERY

An NGO in Ghana, Voice of the Innocent Children(Voicegh) is in need of funds for the treatment of a two year old boy named Moses suffering from congenital defect. Mr. Kwesi Ansah, founder of the NGO took to his Facebook page to solicit for funds.

Below is what he wrote on Facebook:

Let’s Do It For 2Yr Old Moses Narh

This is handsome and energetic 2 year old Moses Narh who lives in Ashaiman near Tema. Moses was born with a congenital defect. The doctors detected a swelling on the baby’s nose, and a soft forehead at birth, and the baby was immediately taken to Korle-Bu for further investigation and attention. His mother was asked to come back with the baby at a later date, but due to financial challenges, they were not able to go back to the hospital.
Moses was brought to me sometime last year by Ms. Lawrencia Nyame, who happens to live in the same neighborhood with Moses and his mother. Lawrencia saw me on TV with one of the kids I did surgery for, and thought if she drew my attention to the little boy’s plight, he might get the necessary help. I was touched when I saw Moses, so I took him back to the hospital to see the doctor. Upon assessment, Moses was diagnosed to have

Giant Frontoethmoidal Meningoencephalocele (FEM)
Dysgenesis of the corpus callosum
Hydrocephalus

This simply means that Moses has a defect (hole) between the front part of his brain (cranium), and his ethmoidal bone (the bone that separates the nasal cavity from the brain), and this hole is filled with cerebral/brain tissue.
He also has fluid collecting in his head which needs to be drained.

The scans showed a big, gaping hole on Moses’s forehead, and his brain is what has pushed through the hole causing this huge swelling. Moses is healthy in terms of all his physical functions, but is a high-risk child. He can’t go to school because in case he gets hurt on the forehead, that’s his brain right there in the swelling, and the impact could be fatal. The teachers are scared to keep Moses in school.

Moses will require complex surgery involving multiple specialists to correct the above-mentioned problems. The surgery requires expertise in neurosurgery, pediatrics, otorhinolaryngology (ENT) and plastic surgery.

Due to the complexity of the surgery, it cannot be done here in Ghana. After researching our options, we have found the best option to be in India. Moses will have to be flown to India as soon as possible for the surgery, which is estimated at a total cost of Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000).

Find attached current pictures of Moses, as well as a medical certificate from neuroGHANA stating the diagnosis, prescribed solution and the cost of surgery.

Little Moses urgently needs our help. Like we have done in the past to save the lives of other children, we can do it again. Little drops of water, will make a mighty ocean which can save Moses’s life. Every pesewa and dollar is very well appreciated, and will go a long way to help pay the medical bill.
