Ibrahim is a playful three-year-old boy who is about to start kindergarten. His mother is a hardworking single parent of two children who works as a hawker selling goods.
Since birth, Ibrahim has had a right inguinal hernia. On December 21st, his mother brought him to the hospital because he was experiencing frequent vomiting and periodic swelling in his inguinal area that worsens when he stands. Ibrahim can experience pain, vomiting, a reduced appetite, and discomfort while walking. Upon review, doctors recommended surgery.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), is helping Ibrahim receive surgery that will help him live more comfortably. On December 29th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at the care center. AMHF is requesting $631 to fund Ibrahim’s procedure.
Ibrahim’s mother shared, “I am happy that his condition can be treated surgically. Ibrahim needs to be happy like other children and play with friends during this holiday.”
