Evans received life-changing kidney treatment.

Evans underwent a successful pyeloplasty kidney surgery and has returned home now that the medical team found his condition to have stabilized. He’ll continue to return for follow-up visits to make sure he fully heals and the team does not anticipate he’ll need any further surgeries.

Evans aunt shared, “All is well now that Evans underwent the surgery. He should be able to go to back class uninterrupted and pursue his dream of becoming a ship captain.”

Evans is a 14-year-old student from Kenya who wants to be a ship captain when he grows up. He says that the idea of sailing through the waters and commanding the vessels excites him. Evans is the youngest in a family of four children born to a single mother who passed away in 2007. He and his siblings rely on relatives for school fees and everyday needs.

In 2017, Evans was diagnosed with a condition called pelviureteric junction obstruction which restricts the flow of urine from the renal pelvis to the ureter and causes infections. Evans’ pain has fluctuated over time, but has become persistent since the beginning of this year. He visited our medical partner’s care center for examination and doctors recommended that he undergo pyeloplasty surgery to get rid of the kidney obstruction. If left untreated, his condition could lead to progressive renal deterioration.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $616 to fund Evans’ surgery, scheduled for February 25th.

Evans’ aunt shared, “This consistent illness is really draining him. At times, the pain is so bad that he is unable to go to school. This surgery will be really helpful.”
