Sifurman is a cute three-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He is the only child of his parents. His father is a daily laborer, while his mother washes clothes for people to add to their income. The limited money that they earn covers the rental of their house and the cost of food.
Sifurman 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 when he is an adult.
Fortunately, Sifurman is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on April 20th at BethanyKids Myungsung Christian Medical Centre. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,293 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Not only will Sifurman’s condition be corrected, but his parents will no longer have to worry about the health of their only child.
Sifurman’s mother said: “I would be greatly happy to see him healthy. I will educate him.”
