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.”
