Raymar is a 16-month-old boy from the Philippines who loves to smile at people who come near him. Our medical partner, International Care Ministries, tells us, “he is unaware of his current condition and is moving and playing just like any other kid.”
Raymar has an inguinal hernia, in which a mass of tissues protrudes through a weak point in his abdominal muscles. He has swelling around his groin area.
Treatment for Raymar is a hernia repair, which will cost $1,437. His surgeon will push the tissues and fat back inside the abdominal cavity and suture close the opening in his muscles. The treatment will give Raymar an opportunity to live a normal life and he will be free from complications of hernias, such as tissue death.
“As a mother, I dreamed of a wonderful future for my child, however, because of his condition, we could not clearly see his future,” says Raymar’s mother, “After he gets treated, we are excited to see him grow and play like other children and we will also be worry free.”

Raymar received successful hernia repair surgery.
“Having his health restored, Raymar can now go through his childhood with ease,” shares his doctor at International Care Ministries, our medical partner in the Philippines. “His parents can manage around his developmental milestones with peace and confidence. It is normal for a child in his age to cry and play to develop feelings, gather information and eventually learn. He no longer has to suffer these times of his life with his hernia, and his parents can now create the proper environment for his development.”
Raymar’s family extends their thanks to the support for their son’s treatment. “We are eternally grateful to the open and generous hearts whom God has used to give us hope, even in our poverty,” his mother said. “With the help of the generous donors and its kind-hearted partners, our son has been given a better chance in life. To live a life without dread of the unknown or even death is a quality of life we can now enjoy as we have always prayed for.”
