Duncan is a young boy from Kenya who hopes to be an engineer in future. The second-born child in a family of four children complains of pain in his groin area and was diagnosed with a left undescended testicle. Surgery was recommended but he has not yet received it. The family was not able to raise funds needed for surgery. Duncan’s father works as an electrician and his income is not sufficient to pay for the surgery. They tried to raise funds for his surgery but were unable to raise the full amount. His parents can see that their son has a bright future ahead of him, and they don’t want this problem to stop him from achieving his dream. They hope that Duncan will be able to get treatment through any means possible.
Recently, found out about Bethany Kids and the services they offer. If not treated, Duncan is at risk of suffering fertility problems, inguinal hernia and potentially testicular torsion.
Duncan will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on November 5th. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want to be an engineer when I grow up,” says Duncan.
