Andrey is a young boy from Kenya. He is the only child to his single mother. The family of two lives in a rental house in central Kenya. Andrey’s mother works as a sales agent in a local company and earns just enough to meet their basic needs.
Andrey was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Andrey has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Andrey will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on August 6. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I hope Andrey gets treated so that it does not affect him adversely,” says Andrey’s mother.
