Julius is a young boy from Kenya and the oldest among his 3 other siblings. He is very ambitious and aspires to be a pilot in future. Recently, he was diagnosed with right inguinal hernia and requires surgery to repair it.
He complained of a swell around his groin area and together with his mother, decided to observe it over time. However, for the past one month, Julius has been experiencing pain around the swollen location. He was taken to a local clinic and later referred to our hospital. With successful surgery, Julius will be able to lead a life free of the pain and achieve his aspirations.
Julius comes from a humble background. His father sells coffee and mandazi to provide for the family. His mother is a housewife. The family is not able to raise funds needed for his surgery and so appeal for assistance.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $423 to fund Julius’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
“I want to be a pilot when I grow up,” says Julius.
