Nickson is a 3-year-old boy from Kenya. Nickson is the youngest in a family of four children. He lives with his parents and siblings in a one-room house in the Northern region of Kenya. His mother is a full-time mom while his father recently landed a job as a teacher.
For some time, Nickson has had an incarcerated umbilical hernia. Prolonged incarceration can lead to tissue ischemia (strangulation) and shock when untreated. Fortunately, on April 16th he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $423 to fund Nickson’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
“Please help us,” says Nickson’s mother.
