Shaban is a boy from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of three children.
Recently, Shaban has been experiencing a sore throat. He also experiences recurrent fevers. Shaban was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Shaban, which is scheduled to take place on November 2. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Shaban of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Shaban’s father says, “I would like for my son to be able to sleep soundly, eat better, and be happy.”
