Baby Martin's Neonatal ICU care fund

Baby Martin's Neonatal ICU care fund

Personal message

Baby Martin was born via emergency c-section on 13 December 2017 at 19:20 at 31 weeks, weighing only 1.19kg and measuring 37cm.

Initially, all looked well and we were very thankful to be blessed with a healthy child, but then things started to change.

Baby Martin developed jaundice and a day later, it was discovered that he had a serious condition where his intestine leading to the colon has perforated. He underwent surgery at 4 days old.

We are not coping with the costs and need help.

Follow our progress on our Facebook Page.
