My name is Ishmeal alfred Charles, i work for both Caritas Freetown and the Healey International Relief Foundation. As a Humanitarian, i recently championed the campaign of another 10 months baby Mustapha whose surgery was successful in India and doing great till now. Now i am greeted with another case of a 11 months baby Marian who is also sick with Biliary atresia. Even though it is over whelmed us all, we cannot watch a baby die just because she was born in a country with very poor healthcare . I have devoted myself to help her get to where she can have a liver transplant. The Max Super Specialty Hospital in India have 96% success rate in cases of Biliary Atresia and so we have established very strong relationship with hospital. This means that we are not only assured of a successful outcome but to thrive and live a normal life again. Baby Mustapha's case was the eye opener to this unfortunate condition, but as the health infrastructure in Sierra Leone is not robust enough to cater for such cases, it is only now that the doctors can use baby Mustapha's experience to determine any new similar case, hence the reason for a successful diagnoses of baby Marian's case. Eight months old baby Marian has also been diagnosed with Biliary Atresia after physicians followed baby Mustapha's similar symptoms. 5th June, 2018, Baby Marian was diagnosed of biliary Atresia. Her eyes became jaundice 2-3months after birth, her mother took her to her maternity hospital in Kambia to her report condition but she was told by her doctor to give glucose to the baby and it will disappear over time. After keeping to the doctor's advice, yet still nothing change or improvement. After a while a Kenya doctor was deployed at the same hospital and baby Marian was taken to him but he referred the baby to the Ola During Children's hospital commonly called Cottage hospital. On the 1st June 2018 baby Marian was admitted at the Ola During Children's Hospital at Cottage for further investigations. After several scans were done and comparative analysis, it was confirmed that she has Biliary Artesia. Immediately, the mother began worrying knowing fully that such a condition is very expensive and cannot be done in Sierra Leone. As we continue to thank Sierra Leoneans, the Office of the First Lady, Mercury International, Ministry of Health and Sanitation, the Government of Sierra Leone and all those unseen people who donated generously to help save the life of baby Mustapha. We would not be able to do this without your kindest heart touching supports. We 've proved that we are people of love irrespective of the challenging times. Again we are here pleading for support for baby Marian. After having several engagements with the doctors in the same hospital (Max Super Speciality Hospital) where Mustapha's surgery was done, they have agreed to reduce the medical cost by 20% of the 36,000 USD.

Marian is really sick now and has barely less than one month more to undergo her transplant otherwise the complications will be doubled
