Current Focus Areas

Goodgiving is currently focused on the following ailments which are common in infants.
1Anorectal Malformations
Anorectal malformations include a wide spectrum of defects in the development of the lowest portion of the intestinal and urogenital tracts. Many children with these malformations are said to have an imperforate anus because they have no opening where the anus should be. Although the term may accurately describe a child's outward appearance, it often belies the true complexity of the malformation beneath. When a malformation of the anus is present, the muscles and nerves associated with the anus often have a similar degree of malformation...read more: https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/929904-overview#a4
2Bronchial Asthma
The disease has an allergic nature, it is based on the inflammatory process in the airways and the hyperreactivity of the bronchi to external stimuli. From time to time, the patient experiences attacks of bronchial obstruction (partially or completely reversible) with a cough, wheezing, tightness in the chest. Unlike asthma in adults, asthma in children is difficult to identify: small patients often can not describe the state of discomfort. In addition, at the little age, bronchi have a narrower lumen and less developed muscular apparatus, as a result of which asthma seems to be a common cold.....read more : http://www.genistafoundation.org/bronchial-asthma-in-children-symptoms-and-treatment.html
3Cleft Lip and Palate
Cleft lip and palate are birth defects that happen while a baby is developing in the uterus. During the 6th to 10th week of pregnancy, the bones and tissues of a baby's upper jaw, nose, and mouth normally come together (fuse) to form the roof of the mouth and the upper lip. If this doesn't happen properly, a baby could be born with a cleft lip or cleft palate, or both.....read more : https://kidshealth.org/en/teens/cleft.html
4Hernia
Many people are surprised to learn that hernias are fairly common in kids. Babies (especially preemies) can even be born with them. Hernias in kids can be treated (hernia repair is the one of the most common surgeries performed on children), but it's important to recognize their symptoms so that you can get your child the appropriate medical care...... read more : https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/hernia.html
5Hydrocele
A hydrocele is a collection of fluid in the scrotum. Most hydroceles go down within the first few months of life in babies so do not need treatment. If a hydrocele persists then a small operation can usually cure the problem...read more : https://patient.info/health/scrotal-lumps-pain-and-swelling/hydrocele-in-children
6Jaundice
Jaundice, a common condition in newborns, refers to the yellow color of the skin and whites of the eyes that happens when there is too much bilirubin in the blood. Bilirubin (bill-uh-ROO-bin) is produced by the normal breakdown of red blood cells. Normally, it passes through the liver, which releases it into the intestines as bile (a liquid that helps with digestion)...read more : https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/jaundice.html
7Neonatal Sepsis
Neonatal sepsis is a significant cause of neonatal mortality in developing countries. In neonatal sepsis, the normal immune system response is sent into overdrive, causing a blood condition which is potentially harmful to the baby’s health. It involves the production of excessive white blood cells to fight the infection. This usually occurs before the baby is 90 days old....read more :https://www.google.com.ng/amp/s/www.news-medical.net/amp/health/Causes-and-Symptoms-of-Sepsis-in-Newborns.aspx
8Undescended Testicles
Undescended testicles (also known as cryptorchidism) is a condition in which one or both of a baby boy's testicles (testes) have not moved down into their proper place in the scrotum. As a baby boy grows inside his mother's womb, his testicles form inside his abdomen and move down (descend) into the scrotum shortly before birth. But in some cases, that move doesn't happen, and the baby is born with one or both testicles undescended..read more : https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/cryptorchidism.html
