A three-year-old boy born with his organs on the outside will get life-saving surgery thanks to a chance meeting with British doctor.

Ethan Suglo, from Ghana, has a condition called Exomphalos which means his organs are outside his abdomen.

Last summer, doctor David Williams was in Ghana visiting his daughter who was teaching English and working on a radio show when he met Ethan’s father Charles, who also worked at the radio station.

Dr Williams was asked to examine Ethan and within a year he and his wife Jacquie helped to raise around £51,000 to fly the toddler to the UK for surgery.

Ethan is set to have what Dr Williams has described as “life-saving and life-transforming” surgery on Wednesday.

Looking back on the day he met Ethan in July 2015, Dr Williams said: “I was asked when I went out, because I’m a doctor, just to have a look at Ethan.

“So I went thinking I’d see a little African boy with a swollen tummy… malnutrition and worms, and when I got there I was just shocked by what I saw.

“I’d never seen it before, certainly not in a two-year-old. I don’t think I’d ever seen it in my career, I’ve been a doctor 20 or 30 years and I’d never seen this case.
