Help this Rally grow by simply liking it:
Joshua, a sweet baby boy from Congo estimated to be 4-6 months old, was found in late July abandoned, malnourished, and dying weighing under 2 lbs. He is a fighter and is fighting daily to stay alive. Joshua can't do this alone and needs your help!
Joshua was found in Kinshasa, DRC and authorities asked a family to foster him. The family happened to be sponsored by All Blessings International. ABI is a non-profit organization offering adoption services for international adoptions and runs humanitarian aid projects. The foster family knew the only hope for Baby Joshua to survive was to get him to the U.S. for advanced medical care.
Joshua was brought to the U.S. on an emergency medical visa. He stopped breathing as the plane was landing in Washington, DC for a layover. It was as if he knew he was over U.S. soil–he had made it and now he needed others to keep him alive.
Paramedics loaded Joshua into the ambulance on the tarmac and took him to Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC where he has been in the NICU since September 15th.
For a child that was in an extreme state of malnutrition for months and dying, currently the doctors are not seeing any reason he can’t make a full recovery in the years to come with advanced treatments!
Funds raised by this rally will go directly to all medical expenses involved with Baby Joshua; this includes the medical transportation to Washington.
We need your financial help! Please give generously to help Baby Joshua survive!
