Bernard is a child from Kenya. Bernard comes from a humble background. He is under the care of his grandmother who hawks housewares to make ends meet.
Sometime ago, Bernard has been experiencing difficulty breathing. This causes him to wake in the middle of the night often with shortness of breath He was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Bernard’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $779 to fund an adenotonsillectomy for Bernard, which is scheduled to take place on September 5th. Surgeons will remove his tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving Bernard of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Bernard’s grandmother says, “My wish is to be able to provide for Bernard all that he needs including quality healthcare”.
