# Emmanuel Surgery Update
A recent story about Emmanuel and his need for reconstructive surgery provoked significant interest
The story of our young boy in need of reconstructive surgery immediately prompted several people to organise a sponsored walk to raise funds for the necessary surgery.
The result was fantastic and, together with other donations, we now have £1500 to assist with the costs. Thank you so much for your generosity!
Regrettably, in the absence of approval from the child’s mother, we have had to instruct an advocate to obtain a court order permitting the surgery in the interests of the child. If this is successful, the first stage of surgery is scheduled for 6th August 2014. We will, of course, keep you posted as the situation develops.
