Jayden is a one-year-old boy from Kenya, the second of two children in his family. One month before Jayden was born, his mother was told to go on leave to prepare for the delivery and to report to work after one year. After she had a successful delivery and full recovery, when she reported back to work, she was told that there was no vacancy for her. Jayden’s parents separated a few days after he was born due to family issues, and his mother has moved back to her parent’s house with her children.
Since birth, Jayden has had bilateral inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue obstruction or death. Fortunately, on February 11th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $554 to fund Jayden’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
Jayden’s mother says, “I am very hopeful that Jayden will be treated.”
