Mathayo is a 17-month-old baby and the only child of his parents. They are small scale farmers who grow mainly maize and vegetables for their food at home. They try to also make extra income through the father seeking casual laboring day jobs.
Beginning three months ago, Mathayo developed an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and, if not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue death or damage. Fortunately, on May 10th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $566 to fund Mathayo’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Mathayo’s mother says, “My baby cries a lot due to the pain and the condition is getting worse as days go by. Please help my son.”
