Gian is a young boy from Kenya. Gian’s mother sells clothes and his father is a private school teacher. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Gian’s father has not been receiving any monthly income because learning in institutions has been suspended until the pandemic is over. This has made it hard for his parents to earn enough money for his surgery because they only get enough for basic needs of their family of four. Gian has a twin brother who also needs surgery.
Gian was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Gian is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on July 13th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $735 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Gian’s mother says: “Having gone through several revision surgeries, I am praying and hoping that this surgery will be successful.”
