Lawrence is a young boy from Kenya and the second born of three children in his family. He is in nursery school and doing well. He lives with his parents and siblings in a two-room rental house in the Central region of Kenya. Lawrence’s mother is employed in a tea farm as a tea picker while his father takes on any casual task, ranging from farming to construction to supplement their family’s income.
Lawrence was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Lawrence has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Lawrence will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 19th. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want to be a pastor when I grow up,” says Lawrence.
