Chel underwent a CT scan.

His CT results indicated that he has chronic pancreatitis. His doctor prescribed him medication.

He said, “I feel a lot better since I have taken the medication prescribed by the doctor. If I do not need surgery, it will be great. But I will wait for the next appointment to learn if I need surgery from the doctor. Now, I will go home, and I would like to say thank you very much to the donors who helped pay for my CT scan. You were very kind to me.”

Chel is a 23-year-old man from Burma. Since October 2018, Chel has been experiencing sharp pain in his abdomen.

Doctors want Chel to undergo a CT scan, a procedure in which x-ray images taken from several angles are combined to produce cross-sectional images of the body. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $414 to cover the cost of Chel’s CT scan and care, scheduled for June 21.

Chel said, “I want to be healthy so that I can work to support my family. My family needs me.”

Kendrick

Kendrick is a 6-month old boy from Kenya. He is a chubby, quiet child who was diagnosed with a left inguinal hernia, a condition that develops when fatty or intestinal tissues push through a weakness in the abdominal wall near the right or left inguinal canal. When he was four months old, Kendrick’s mother noticed a slight swelling on his groin. He was crying as if he was in pain. After some time the swelling retracted. A few days later, the same thing reoccurred but this time, they rushed him to the nearest hospital where he was diagnosed with a left inguinal hernia. Due to lack of a specialist, they were referred to Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center BethanyKids where surgery has been recommended. If not treated, Kendrick is at a risk of suffering strangulation which can potentially restrict blood flow to his tissues. Kendrick is the youngest in a family of three children. They live together in a two-room rental house in Kikuyu in Central Kenya. Kendrick’s mother is a housewife. His father is employed casually in a computer shop. With a very limited income, Kendrick’s parents are not in a position to raise the funds needed and but they have raise Kes. 10,000. Fortunately, on May 13th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $423 to fund Kendrick's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably. "I will appreciate help accorded towards my son’s surgical care,” says Kendrick’s mother.
