I am praying and wishing all the process goes well with the court and his parents and I made my boy officially my child.”

Eyohas is three-year-old from Ethiopia. He is a sweet and loving boy who likes to play football and play with cars. His guardian Lishan is his mom’s aunt and she is the one who is raising Eyohas. Lishan has one child of her own and she also adopted and raises a girl who is her niece. Her husband is a driver and the breadwinner for their family. His income is all goes directly to meeting their basic needs. Together they live in a rented house with one room.

Lishan discovered about Eyohas’s condition a year ago but they could not get him the necessary treatment due to financial constraints. Eyohas has an inguinal hernia, which results from a weakness in the abdominal wall.

Fortunately, on March 15th, Eyohas will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $512 to fund Eyohas’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently as he grows.

Lishan shared, “I hope with this surgery, he will heal and he will go to school. In the future I believe he will be a successful adult. I wish him to have a good life in the future.”

Benedister

Benedister is a 45-year-old single mother and small-scale farmer from Kenya. She plants maize and millet for her family's consumption and for sale. Benedister has seven children between 11 and 23 years old. When she is done with her farm work, Benedister always looks for casual jobs in order to earn extra wages. She is very hardworking, as she is her family’s sole breadwinner. One day, while walking around her compound, Benedister fell and injured her right lower limb. She was unable to walk, so she was carried by some of her relatives to the hospital. Her pain was so intense that she was given some pain medication, then sent for an x-ray. The x-ray revealed that she had a bimalleolar fracture with a joint dislocation, which means that in addition to a bone being broken, the ligaments on the inside of her ankle were injured as well. She was treated, and then her ankle was immobilized with a bulky jones splint. She is not able to walk on her own and is in a lot of pain. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On February 7th, Benedister will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Afterward, she will be able to walk easily again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,145 to fund this procedure. Benedister says, “It’s really sad that I cannot walk without support. My children look up to me for all their needs and here I am now with a broken leg and cannot offer any help to them. Please help me get my bones fixed so that I will be able to work and live normally as before.”
