Ebenezer underwent tonsil surgery.

Ebenezer ’s surgery went well. The doctors successfully removed the enlarged tonsils and adenoids that were making his breathing difficult and causing his sleep apnea. He can now breathe freely and sleep soundly.

Ebenezer’s mother says, “My son can now breathe well, he is no longer snoring and waking up from periods of sleep. Thank you.”

Ebenezer is a five-year old-boy from Tanzania. He is the second in a family of four children. He started nursery school this year. He loves that he has new friends and that he can draw, color, and play games.

Ebenezer has been experiencing difficulty sleeping and swallowing. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Ebenezer, which is scheduled to take place on November 2. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Ebenezer of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

His mother says, “Please help me get my son this treatment. That will help him sleep soundly.”
