Natnael underwent hernia surgery.

Natnael’s hernia repair was successful. He is no longer at risk of intestinal tissue damage and obstruction.

His parents say, “We can’t explain our entire feelings. All we wanted was to see our boy heal, grow, and become a great man. It was not easy to find him a hospital that can give him the surgery. We are now happy and thankful.”

Natnael is a baby from Ethiopia. He loves to play with toys and with his parents.

Since birth, Natnael has had bilateral inguinal hernias. If not treated, this may result in intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on December 13, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $562 to fund Natnael’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

Natneal’s father says, “We came here with a hope of support from charity organizations.”
