Nikodimos underwent hernia repair surgery.

Nikodimos’s surgery went well and his doctors feel that no additional medical intervention is now needed. In addition to preventing the pain, discomfort, and potential tissue death, this treatment will stop any future bowel obstruction and potential death.

Nikodimos’s father shared, “Before the surgery, at the time of the surgery and after the surgery the doctors and other staffs helped us lower our stress. They worked on our psychological status. We were so stressed and they talked to us about the condition and that it is surgically curable. Also, they told us the surgery is effective and that we don’t need to fear. We are so grateful. The hospital is neat; it was more than my expectation. Now once Nikodimos’s recovers, I hope he will stop crying all the time, and his pain will stop. Also I hope he will grow healthy and happy.”

Nikodimos is a beautiful baby boy from Ethiopia who loves to play with his mom. He is three months old and has a ten-year-old sibling. His dad is a photographer who works on capturing events, though his business has slowed due to impacts of COVID. His mom was an elementary school teacher, but after experiencing some sickness in her pregnancy she left her job to prioritize taking care of her health and her baby.

Since birth, Nikodimos has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him discomfort and, if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on March 25th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $512 to fund Nikodimos’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

His dad said: “After we came to this hospital, our hope is very high. Our stress decreased. In the near future, I hope he will heal completely and become happy and grow healthy.”
