In 2018, AMURT Nigeria provided support for 40 children’s surgeries, many of them lifesaving interventions. We took seven hydrocephalus/spina bifida cases to UNTH Enugu for surgery. One such case, that of Onykecachi from Mgbalukwu, who is 18 months old, touched the hearts of over one million internet users when her story went viral on social media.
Miracle from Inikiri was identified with hydrocephalus in utero. AMURT assisted with the cesarean section and later with surgery at UNTH Enugu. Now she is well and can live a full life.
In addition, AMURT assisted in surgeries ranging from incarcerated hernias to intestinal blockages, amputations and cyst removals.
