David is a child from Kenya. He is the first of two children and lives with his parents and sibling in a one-room rental house in Central Kenya.
David was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, David has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
David will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on November 7. AMHF is requesting $542 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I feel sad to see my son in pain and hope that someday he will forget all this pain,” says David’s mother.
