Dear Sir/Madam

We would like to bring to the attention of caring individuals and/or organizations the plight of a 10-month-old baby girl born in Bosaso - Puntland- Somalia, with congenital abnormality described by her doctors in attachment 1 as Ectopia Vesicae.  An appeal for help from the child's father is also attached (attach 2).

Diagnosis : Ectopia Vesicae

After having examined completely this small daughter with the age of IO months, I came up to the conclusion, this child has congenital abnormality diagnosed with Ectopia Vesicae. It is not possible to reconstruct the bladder here in Somalia, therefore it is required to get specialized pediatric surgery institution capable of fulfilling this kind of operation.

Subiect: Patient with Ectopia Vesicae

I am Somali Veterinarian living in Bosaso town of North east of Somalia, married with 6 children. Unfortunately, one of my children with the age of IO months who is female was delivered with congenital disease. This was diagnosed as " Ectopia Vesicae" Bladder extrophy. This is associated with skeletal abnormality, and fusion of the Symphysis Pubis. She has incontinence of urine relating to the problem of the bladder, and also is not present vulva and vagina.

As you know, at currently Somalia is an unstable country with civil war, therefore, all health infrastructures are collapsed and are not almost functioning properly, for this reason, it is not possible to carry out the surgical reconstruction of this congenital abnormality.

I am not able to fund this kind of operation absolutely by myself. Hence, please kindly I request your help to save the life of this young daughter.

I am kindly looking forward hearing from you, making your help available for this poor young daughter.


Thanks and best regards
