March 13, 2022

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.”
