Malawi child without sexual organs and anus wants support for medical procedure

A Malawin child who was  born in 2006 at Queen’s Elizabeth  Central Hospital, in Blantyre without sexual organs and anus is seeking financial support to enable him undergo operation.

The child who needs medical procedure

According to her grandmother Ellen Kataya who is also the guardian,  since the child was born without natural disposal openings , it is difficult for the child to go the toilet normally.

Besides that, the child has got a problem with the limbs , making the child unable to walk.

Kataya said the child requires to undergo several operations before the age of 14  to correct the situation.

“The child is now 13 years old. Only one operation was done to close one hole on the stomach but this did not help much as the situation was reversed after a few months.

“As a result is it impossible for the child to visit the toilet alone, relying on other people and is still dressed in nappies which makes other children to  stigmatize the child at school because of the smell. The child uses the holes on the stomach for urinating and defecation,” she said.

According to Kataya ,one expatriate  doctor at Queen Elizabeth Hospital has been blocking any attempts to have the child sent for an operation in South Africa.

“From what this Doctor told us , he did not believe this child will live long, and hence an operation abroad would be a waste of time and resources on our child. As a result of this , the child is now suffering.” Kayata lamented.

Kataya also added that  Doctors at Beit Cure International Hospital , who were supposed to operate on the child to enable the child to walk, failed as they waited for an operation on the genitalia which would enable them to do a successful operation on the legs.

The child  who was named Sandra, because of feminine looks, stays  in Chilomoni with her grand mother Kataya  a widow who is also a retired Primary School teacher.Sandra is a bright child who is now in standard 8 and aspires to be a lawyer.

The issue of Sandra was unearthed by Foundation for Widows and Orphans, (FOWO) during one of its meetings in Chilomoni, and Kataya happens to be the member of the organization

Kenneth Chipeta who is the Co-Founder and Executive Director  of FOWO is appealing to well wishers to financially help Sandra  to go South Africa to under go an operation so that Sandra can live a normal life.

This is a sad story. Only God can resolve this situation. I pray that the child finds financial support, undergoes the needed operation, fully recover, and live a normal life like any other child. We’ve lots of financially able people in Malawi and elsewhere who can help this child. I hope they take notice and act.

Nothing is impossible with God as the word says in the book of Mathews 19 vs 26. Doctors can say that the child can not live long but with God she can live. What is needed is, well wishers has to do something or our Government to send this child to T.B JOSHUA in Nigeria.Believe me Our God is using other People to have the gift of healing.
