Toddler with Hypospadias gets help

A photo shared by an aid worker has gone viral, raising enough money to save a Nigerian boy’s life. The 2-year-old boy was abandoned by his parents after the community accused the child of being a witch. Witchcraft is often used as an explanation for birth defects in Nigeria.

The $1 million raised has allowed the boy, named Hope by his rescuer, to receive a blood transfusion and stomach worm removal. The funds also allowed doctors to address another problem called hypospadias. Hypospadias is a birth defect where the opening of the urethra is formed in the wrong place in male fetuses. His caregivers expect him to undergo corrective surgery soon.

Fortunately, the donations for Hope are allowing him to make a full recovery from his malnutrition and birth defects. Many families of children suffering from hypospadias are not so lucky, often struggling with medical bills. If your child suffers from hypospadias or other birth defects due to the prescription drug Depakote prescribed during pregnancy, you may be eligible for much needed compensation.
