Meet Brian, a five-year-old boy from Kenya. He has been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. He developed the condition when he was only one year old. Without treatment, he was at risk of a strangulated hernia. In July, he finally visited a hospital, where he was referred to our medical partner's hospital, BethanyKids Kijabe Hospital. There, he underwent a hernia repair surgery on December 6. Brian is an only child, and his mother is very worried about him. She is a single mother who washes clothes for a living. They live in a one-room house with her mother and cousin. She needs help to pay for her son's $423 procedure. “I want my son to be well so that I can have peace of mind," says Brian's mother.
