Obediah, age 9, was referred to Fresh Start by Childspring International. He has a large mass on his cheek, which is impairing his ability to eat and speak properly. Doctors in his home country of Liberia do not have the medical knowledge or resources to treat this condition.
Untreated, Obediah would likely be hidden away from society and his chances of education and participation in daily life in his community would be slim. Obediah will be a long term patient with Fresh Start Surgical Gifts, and is generously hosted by a Volunteer Host family while receiving his surgeries and medical care in San Diego.
To date Obediah has received $194,339 in medical care.
