Little Abenezer has a cleft lip, which means there is an opening in the upper part of his lip. “Sometimes it is hard to feed him, but other than that he is eating and he is a healthy baby.” Alemtsehay, Abenezer’s mother, shared. Little Abenezer was born premature which means Alemtsehay didn't get to see him right as he was born. When she did though, his cleft lip was immediately noticeable. Thankfully she soon found out that Abenezer's cleft lip was treatable when a past patient of ours here at CURE Ethiopia passed on the news of how we serve the children of Ethiopia. Alemtsehay says she is thankful to have found a place that would give Abenezer all the help he needs!
Join us in welcoming this family as they start Abenezer's healing journey!
Thank you all for your prayers, Abenezer is doing great and it is time for him to go home! While getting ready to leave, he just slept soundly as his mother got all their stuff together. He will continue his recovery from home and we will see him again when he returns for his check-up!
Check out Abenezer's post-surgery lip! His cleft lip is gone and in it's place, a complete lip! After his surgery, he spent some resting in the ward and almost immediately got his appetite back which is impressive.
The whole country of Ethiopia has been in an internet blackout for two weeks and during that time, Abenezer had his operation! Dr. Tesfaye did a wonderful job closing Abenezer's cleft lip and he was soon resting back in the ward.
