Amos underwent surgery for a birth condition so he can walk well.

Amos underwent a successful bilateral leg surgery. The surgery enables him to walk well, stand for a long time, and enroll in school without any challenge. His family is relieved that he has finally had treatment.

“I am grateful for the support you rendered to us, we are looking forward to seeing him walking like other children,’’ Amos’s father told us.

Amos is a three-year-old boy and the third born in a family of four children. Amos’s father works at construction sites while his mother works at home to take care of their home and family.

Amos was born with a condition known as Blount’s disease, or bowing of both legs. The condition has greatly affected his mobility and he cannot walk for a long distances or stand. He is almost school-aged, but unfortunately cannot attend school because of the severity of his condition.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH) is helping Amos to receive treatment. Amos is scheduled to undergo surgery on May 9th. Now, AMH is requesting $1,224 to fund Amos’s procedure. After the surgery, he will be able to walk well, stand for long periods of time, and even begin school!

Amos’s father shared, “my desire as a parent is to see my son walking like other children. Any support will be highly appreciated.”

Nereah

Nereah is a beautiful four-year-old girl. Nereah is the firstborn in a family of two and likes to play a lot, which makes her parents very happy to see. At the moment, she has started preschool. Nereah’s mother is a homemaker, while her father is a laborer at road construction sites whenever he can get the work. They have had National Health Insurance in the past, but now to reactivate they are were required to pay upfront for one year, which they could not afford. Fortunately, the Nazareth Hospital Reception team identified their significant need and referred them to our medical partner's representative at the hospital. As Nereah's parents cannot afford the surgery, they need help raising $565 for her care. According to her mother, Nereah’s condition started when she was about three weeks old, but her mother did not realize it was a problem until about one year ago. She has been having frequent nose blockage and needs to breathe through her mouth especially at night, as well as as frequent common colds and swelling of her tonsils. Despite getting various types of medication, there has not been improvement. A scan showed adenoid-palatine hypertrophy, and the ENT team has advised surgery to solve her condition. If not treated, Nereah will continue suffering from symptoms and may have further complications like middle ear infections and sleeping disorders. “We have been waiting and hoping insurance would approve our surgical request, but now we don’t know what to do. We hope her surgery could be sponsored so that our daughter can get treated and stop suffering at night,” said Nereah’s mother.
