Samuel is a 15-month-old baby boy and the only child of his mother. He and his mother live with Samuel’s grandparents and his mother works as a small-scale farmer.
For three weeks, Samuel has had an inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain and swelling near his groin making it difficult for him to be comfortable. He requires surgery to treat his condition.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Samuel to receive treatment. On August 16th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $566 to fund Samuel’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Samuel’s mother shared, “in the past three weeks my son has been going through pain due to the condition. Please help treat him.”
