LAMPHANG – Little 14-day-old Fifa was born without an anus and his heart to the right side of his chest. Doctors had to relocate his intestines and pin a hole on the side of his stomach for waste drainage. They will perform a heart operation in three months time.

On September 6th, a journalist went to the home of Mrs. Boonthong Gaewthip, 46-years-old, in Lamphang after being informed of the case. The baby male was born on August 19th and is now two weeks old. His name is Fifa or Nuttapol Gaewthip. After the mother gave birth, she was informed by the nurse that there was something wrong with her child. Other than the fact that he had no anus, the doctors x-rayed him and found that his heart was on the opposite side.

In three months time, doctors will perform heart surgery for the child in order to mend a damaged heart valve. The mother pleads to kind hearted people who want to help the baby. Money can be transferred to Agricultural Bank, Lamphang branch: Mr. Gaew Gaewthip – Account number: 029-2-3 4628-9

Doctors also said the relocation of the baby’s heart is possible but will have to wait for the child to grow up first.
