Say hello to Joash! He is three years old, and lives in Kenya with his parents.
Joash lives with a condition called hypospadias. “He is not able to pass urine normally because his urethral opening is not at the tip of his penis,” explains our medical partner African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). “Joash will be at risk of urinary tract infections. He may not be able to have his own children when he grows up and he is likely to have low self-esteem.”
For $655, Joash will receive a hypsophadius repair that will allow him to pass urine normally and reduce his risk of urinary tract infections.
“I have finally found the right hospital for treatment,” Joash’s mother shares. “I am thankful and I look forward to a successful surgery.”
