Does Barbie have a shunt?

02 December 2017

Not yet. Hizkiel, the son of Beza, the chair person of SBH Hope , the Ethiopian spina bifida en hydrocephalus association shows us how we can control the growth of the head as a diagnostic tool.

Hizkiel got a shunt and also his little bear got a shunt. This little friend has a scar and it helps the boy to understand what the surgeon did to him when a shunt was needed. Barbie has not a shunt yet, but the little bear does en he became Hizkiel’s best friend. In Mombasa all parent groups got these little bears to comfort their children.
