Laiyorie underwent surgery that will enable him to use his hands.

Laiyorie’s surgery went well to remove his index finger that was injured from a birth defect. Through this surgery, Laiyorie will be able to use his other fingers in carrying his daily life activities more comfortably, something that was challenging before the surgery. He is still getting new dressing changes, but his wound is healing very well.

Laiyorie’s mother says, “Thank you for accepting to help fund my son’s treatment cost because without your help and support all this would have not been possible. Thank you for making my son’s life easier by correcting his hand.”

Laiyorie is a three year old baby boy and the last born child in a family of seven children. Unfortunately, Laiyorie’s father passed away last year leaving their mother with seven children to take care of all by herself. She was able to start a small business which sells kerosene, sugar, and a few other commodities to make a living and help her provide for her children.

Laiyore was born with deformed fingers of the right hand due to amniotic banding and webbed toes on his right leg. His parents could not seek treatment for him due to financial challenges. But when his mother learned about African Mission Healthcare from the doctors who visited her church she decided to seek treatment for him with our medical partner.

But his mother cannot afford her son’s treatment cost. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. Laiyorie has been scheduled for surgery to remove his deformed index finger which will help him use the remaining fingers with ease in carrying out his daily activities. Now, Laiyorie’s mother asks for your help and support in funding this $1,088 surgery.

Laiyorie’s mother shared, “With all the responsibility I have to provide and care for my children I will not be able to afford my son’s treatment cost. Please kindly help my son have this surgery.”
