about Yosephe's recovery.

December 31, 2019

Yosephe is a young boy from Ethiopia. He is shy but he loves to play with toys with his two sisters and his mom. His dad is a farmer and a daily laborer with a small plot of land. His mom is also a farmer and they farm their land together. Their harvest is limited to feed the family throughout the year and the father works other hard labor to support his family.

Yosephe was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Yosephe has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.

Yosephe will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on January 7th. AMHF is requesting $717 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

Yosephe’s father said, “I am a poor farmer. But I hope my child will be much better with education and a good career. I hope he will lead his life in good health and have a better quality of life.”
