Duncan is a young boy from Kenya, who was 1 month old when he was diagnosed with distal hypospadias. This is a condition where the urethral opening is abnormally placed. His mother took him to the nearest hospital and was referred to a Watsi partner hospital.
In March 2018, she brought Duncan to Kijabe and had one successful surgery performed on him. Duncan needs a second surgery to complete his treatment but his family faces a financial crisis to pay for it.
Duncan is the second born of two children and lives with his parents and sibling in Eastern Kenya. His parents are peasant farmers without an external source of income. They are not able to raise the funds needed.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I am more hopeful than ever, that my son will get treated,” says Duncan’s mother.
