Martin is a baby from Kenya and an only child to his parents. Together they reside in Limuru in Central Kenya in a one-room rental house. His mother is a full-time mom while his father partially works as a tailor from his house doing repairs and, at times, works at a hardware shop in Kenya’s capital as a handyman.
Martin was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Martin has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Martin will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on April 3rd. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I trust God is in control of this condition. He will make a way,” says Martin’s father.
