Barrack is a baby from Kenya. He is the youngest in a family of two children.

One year ago, Barrack sustained burns on his right elbow after boiling water spilled on his hand. He cannot straighten or bend his hand fully.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Barrack receive treatment. On August 6, surgeons at their care center will perform a burn contracture release surgery to help him use his hand freely. Now, his family needs help to fund this $799 procedure.

“We have been looking for help concerning my son’s condition and are still waiting for help. My desire is to see his hand straightened and able to do his work independently,” says his father.

Gideon

Gideon, who was born with intellectual disabilities, lives in and attends a special school in Eldoret town. Gideon likes being in school and he likes drawing during his free time. His parents live in the village and it’s been a long time since Gideon has seen them, so he is looking forward to seeing them when he gets treated. Gideon came to the hospital after having a swelling in a sensitive area for more than two years. He reports that it was gradual on the onset but worsened with time. Gideon was brought to the hospital by one of his relatives after they were told of Gideon's condition. Before they came to Kapsowar Hospital, they had tried many other hospitals, but every time they were asked to pay huge amounts of money for treatment, which they cannot afford. Gideon has an appointment for a hydrocelectomy surgery to repair the double hernia bulges. He has been experiencing severe discomfort in the affected area and a mild headache, and feels ashamed walking around due to the swelling. Currently, Gideon is under the care and support of the Samaritans, but they don’t have money to pay for his surgery, only for room and board. They are asking anyone reading this story to support Gideon so he can undergo a successful surgery for recovery. Gideon is a happy young man who looks forward to seeing his parents soon. His uncle says, “I will be happy to see him without the swelling. He deserves to live a happy and healthy life like others.”
