I wanted to let you know how grateful we are for these colostomy bags. Our pediatric surgeon who has performed anal reconstruction on 5 of our kids recently has remarked at how good of a quality the bags are compared to what they have in country. In particular I wanted to show you a few pictures of some of the kids who have received them.
Willy is a long time patient and has been using bags that we’ve been bringing over now for several years. He was waiting for me to come and bring some more because he is supposed to go back to school this week and if he didn’t have more bags he wouldn’t be able to go with his condition. Showing up with the bags was like Christmas morning for him. He was so happy and went ahead and wrote I little sign for you.
Edirisa has just had a colostomy opened up after living with Hirschsprungs Disease and being unable to to pass stool normally. Due to this condition he’s become malnourished and quite unwell as he’s had stool backed up in his bowels and only gets a bowel movement once every two weeks or so. He’s had the first of three operations to correct this condition and these colostomy bags are life savers for him and his grandma who takes care of him.
