Charles is a baby from Kenya. He lives with his siblings at their aunt’s place in central Kenya. His father works as a taxi driver. Unfortunately, his mother passed away last month.
Charles was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Charles has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Charles will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on June 22. AMHF is requesting $542 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“Life has never been as difficult as it is now. I will appreciate any kind of help accorded to us,” says Charles’s father.
