Fatao, a 6-year-old-boy living in Burkina Faso, encountered this exact situation.
Compassion’s Medical Assistance Fund stepped in and thanks to you we raised the $23,000 needed for Fatao to receive life-saving heart surgery.
This young boy is now in recovery and has the hope of a childhood he didn’t have before.
Several children living in poverty stricken conditions are in need of serious medical attention. In fact, the number of proposals for medical assistance has more than tripled since 2008 and this year alone Compassion received 35 medical proposals.
You can help.
When you donate to the Medical Assistance Fund you are helping respond to situations that include: surgery, vision and hearing issues, prosthetic limbs, wheelchairs, trauma counseling, special dental needs, and more.
