We'd like to introduce you to 15 year old Anyang Deng Dut, a brave little girl in South Sudan. She is in urgent need of medical treatment for the massive head wound covered by her pink scarf.
She has been suffering from this spreading bone infection since she was 3 years old and has never had access to medical care! It has now spread to all but her face!! Please DONATE + FACEBOOK & TWEET your friends with your comment to help provide the antibiotic therapy and surgery she desperately needs!
The photos of little Anyang’s condition are shocking, but we must allow you to view them so that you understand just how desperate her situation is. These pictures are hard to look at, but she is living it!
How We Met Anyang: When Anyang’s remote village in South Sudan was attacked and burned, her family fled to an IDP camp. Our organization helped 23 yo Michael Mel Deng evacuate his 15 yo sister and 13 yo brother from the camp to safety in Juba (Michael is returning to the camp this week to evacuate his mother and 2 other siblings).
Upon their return to Juba (April 9th), we discovered that Anyang is suffering from a massive bone infection called Osteomyelitis, a deep infection of the bone seen frequently in malnourshed children. It is destroying the skin and bones of her skull. Her entire scalp has disappeared and the infection has penetrated the entire top, sides and back of her skull. It is spreading every day and is affecting all but her face, which will be destroyed next if we don’t act!
We need your donations to keep her hospitalized, for her antibiotic treatment, and funding for her reconstructive surgery and skin grafts.
Their Miracle: Anyang’s impoverished parents have no means to help their daughter. With your help, we can be their miracle and save her life. We are all more fortunate than this desperate young girl and her family. Please join us to help them.
Donate Now to Help Anyang… she is counting on us and we are her only Hope!
What Her Future Looks Like: While we have paid for her transportation to Juba and her testing, we need funding to for Anyang intensive medical intervention to cure her infection, repair her massive scalp defect and rebuild her skull. The surgeries are not available in South Sudan so she will have to be moved to another country. We are in touch with several medical teams and a surgeon who are interested in helping Anyang with her long term and reconstructive care after the infection is treated. While we are coordinating this, Anyang has been put on intensive, inpatient antibiotic therapy.
Outreach Africa: Lost Boys foundation (www.lostboysUS.org) is an all-volunteer, 501c3, non-profit organization created to help the South Sudanese Lost Boys and Girls. Your donations will go directly for Anyang’s medical care and to feed her family. WE THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS DONATION!
