Others, Stories

Contributed by: Compassion Canada

When adorable Agasoro from Rwanda was born with a cleft pallet, her mother was very frightened. “The doctors told me if she did not get treatment she might die. I used to see my
child and just cry. The upper part of her mouth did not join, it was just open. She could not breastfeed and could only be fed through a tube. I felt hopeless.” ⠀

As a baby, Agasoro remained in the hospital where she underwent multiple surgeries to help save her life. She is now a bubbly three-year-old who is loved by everyone she meets. ⠀
