Christian is a baby from Tanzania. He is the first-born baby in his family. Christian loves to play with other kids and is very active. His father works as a driver, and his mother is a housewife.
Christian has been experiencing trouble breathing and eating and frequent sleep apnea. Frequent illness causes the family to make repeated trips to the hospital. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Christian’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Christian, which is scheduled to take place on June 14. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Christian of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Christian’s mother says, “Please help my son get this treatment so that he is able to eat well, breath without gasping for air, and have a peaceful sleep.”
