Little Estevan has a big smile

Great news!

Estevan, the 4-month-old baby boy whose medical care was funded on Watsi, had a successful cleft surgery this month.

When we posted Estevan’s profile on Watsi, he needed nutritional rehabilitation to prepare him for a safe surgery. He was extremely malnourished from not being able to breastfeed, and his mother could not afford the expensive nutritional supplements, let alone surgery, he needed.

Thanks to 8 generous Watsi donors, Estevan received intensive nutritional therapy and had a successful surgery. His doctor reported that he is back home with his parents and doing “amazingly well.”

If it weren’t for Watsi donors, Estevan would never have been able to afford this surgery. People helping people is a beautiful thing.

How big can you smile?

All the best,
