Joseph is playful and curious three-year-old boy. His mother shared that he will start going to school soon. Joseph’s parents separated a few months before he was born and his father does not support them. His mother has been doing casual jobs to provide for her son, and a few weeks ago, she got a part-time job planting trees in their area for an NGO.
Joseph has had a hernia since last month, and he experiences a lot of pain. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On May 24th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $444 to fund Joseph’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
Joseph’s mother shared, “when I was told that Joseph has to undergo surgery for him to be treated, my heart was filled with sadness and was prepared to have to deal with the fact that he will never get treated but now I am very happy to hear that he will be treated.”
