Desperate Baby Gets New Lease on Life

CBN.com — Nine-month-old Vithal was malnourished.   His cleft lip and palette made it very difficult for him to eat.
His mother, Latha, said with tears in her eyes, "He would throw up whatever we tried to feed him.  The only thing we could give him was powdered milk and water.  He had stomach problems regularly and he always had a cold."

As a vegetable vendor in southern India, his father Santosh, barely made enough money for them to live on. 

Santosh explained, "There were times that I wanted to cry, because we were not able to save money to pay for his operation.  We didn't have anyone to turn to for help."

Then a local hospital found out about Vithal and contacted CBN.  We told them to schedule his cleft lip surgery right away and that we would sponsor it.  One month later, we visited their family to see how Vithal was doing.

"My joy overflowed when I saw him after the operation!" exclaimed Santosh.  "Now he's eating biscuits and bananas, and he's trying to eat grapes and any other fruit he sees.  Everyone in my family keeps telling me how healthy and cute he looks.  I want to thank you so much for giving my son the operation.  My entire family thanks you!"
