Meet Emmanuel, a one-year-old baby boy from Kenya! He is the second-born in a family of two children and his parents work hard to provide for Emmanuel and his sibling. Both Emmanuel’s parents are small-scale farmers and depend entirely on their small farm to support their family.
Emmanuel was born with hydrocephalus, which causes pressure to build up in his brain. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, explains that “without treatment, Emmanuel could suffer blindness, brain damage, and the condition could even be fatal.” His parents are unable to raise the funds for the surgery Emmanuel needs, but we can help!
Emmanuel’s mother says, “I was shocked when my son’s head started growing abnormally! My prayer and hope is to have him treated as soon as possible. I would appreciate any support towards his operation.”
Let’s raise $980 so Emmanuel can receive a shunt incision, a surgery that will allow him to live a normal, healthy life. We can give Emmanuel’s parents the opportunity to watch him grow up and Emmanuel the chance to have a happy childhood with his sibling!
