Meet 2-year-old Gabriel
Gabriel, of region #9 Guyana, was born with a complete cleft lip and palate. In a plea for help, his mother explained that he is unable to eat with ease as his food gets lodged in his air passage, which is detrimental to his health.
SHEA has accepted Gabriel’s case and secured medical treatment for him in the United States, but we need your help to make this all possible. Gabriel will be in treatment for at least 6 months, where he will undergo the necessary surgeries and therapies so that he can recover and live a normal healthy life.
This cleft lip and palate surgery is not just a simple cosmetic repair, this condition affects Gabrielle’s hearing, feeding, speech development, orthodontics and jaw growth, which can require numerous surgeries well into early adulthood. Once his cleft lip and palate are both repaired, he will be able to eat, speak, and play like a normal two-year-old.
Please help us help little Gabriel by making a donation towards his medical expenses.
