Conakry, Guinea. Fatoumata is a young mother. Her beautiful twins, Boubacar and Hassane, were born on January 12th, 2015.
However, they are connected by the liver. This is the very first time that conjoined twins have ever survived in this poverty-stricken country.
For the mother and her doctors, the birth of these children was yet another trial among so many others. The technical conditions on-site make it impossible to carry out the surgery that would separate them.
Their only hope is to undergo surgery abroad, this is where we come in!
We are Chaine de l’Espoir (Chain of Hope), an international France-based nonprofit. Founded in 1994, we are active in over thirty developing countries and operate on 5,000 children each year.
As surgeons, we know that we can separate Boubacar and Hassane with a difficult but manageable surgery led by a team of experts who have great experience with this kind of operation in Paris, France.
You are their only hope and we ask for your help to offer them a new life.
Thank you for your support. Children should never be victims of their birthplace, condemned to suffer from their lack of access to healthcare.
How will your donation be used?
The money raised will be used to finance the children’ surgery.
We estimate that we will need tens of thousands of Dollars. Some of the funding has already been pledged and other calls for donations are underway, but this is just a start.
With your help, we’re trying to raise $10,000 to contribute to the cost of this surgery.
