Hamisi is a six-year-old boy and the only child of his single mother. Hamisi started kindergarten earlier this year, but unfortunately had to stop because he was getting sick so often. His mother is a small-scale farmer and their family depends on her crops for their food.
Since he was two years old, Hamisi has had a right inguinal hernia which means that tissue, such as part of the intestine, protrudes through a weak spot in the abdominal muscles. The hernia has caused swelling on the right side of his pelvis and he experiences pain and discomfort.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Hamisi to receive treatment. On October 18th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Now, he needs help raising $566 to fund his procedure and care.
Hamisi’s mother shared, “my son has been suffering due to this problem since he was two years old. Due to financial challenges, I have not been able to seek treatment for him. The condition has now gotten worse. Please help my son.”
