Gorgeous baby Darmalie was born on La Gonave Island with Spina bifida. Spina Bifida can result in many disabilities, including paralysis of the lower body and legs, causing walking difficulties or inability to walk.
The growth on Darmalie's back, a meningocele needed to be surgically repaired by a Neurosurgeon.
Our For You Haiti team accompanied baby Darmalie at just 9 weeks old to a hospital in north Haiti where she received her life changing surgery! Darmalie is our youngest patient to date!
In 2019, Darmalie moved to Anse a Galets, so that she could start attending For You Haiti’s school. This is sweet Darmalie on her first day!!
