Hydrocephaly and Spina bifida Treatment
During the month of June 2017, HJ Foundation participated in the treatment of 50 children suffering from hydrocephaly, macrocephaly and spina bifida, in partnership with Winner ASBL, a non-governmental organisation specializing in these diseases.
HJ Foundation covered 100% of the costs of the CT scans and MRIs necessary for the surgeries.
Hydrocephaly, marcocephaly and spina bifida are common in developing nations, where pre-natal care is poor, increasing the risk of infection in the womb and in new-borns. These avoidable afflictions can result in malformation, blindness, paralysis and even death.
