Nebarnoti successfully received a tonsillectomy.

When Nebarnoti was 18 months old, he was diagnosed with enlarged adenoids and tonsils. Adenoids and tonsils are masses of tissue that trap contaminants as they pass through the nose and mouth, as well as produce antibodies to fight infections. In Nebarnoti’s case, they often become inflamed and infected, and resulting swelling causes compromised breathing and trouble sleeping at night.

“Thank you - I am ready to go home now!” shares Nebarnoti right after surgery.

Nebarnoti’s is doing great and his surgery was a success! He will be much healthier now that he has had surgery to remove his adenoids and tonsils. His mother shares that she already senses a difference in how he sleeps at night, and how happy he is playing with his peers.

Nebarnoti is a four-year-old boy living in Tanzania with his mother and four siblings. Nebarnoti likes to sing, and whenever he sings he will start jumping as well.

When Nebarnoti was 18 months old, he was diagnosed with enlarged adenoids and tonsils. Adenoids and tonsils are masses of tissue that trap contaminants as they pass through the nose and mouth, as well as produce antibodies to fight infections. Sometimes, as in Nebarnoti’s case, they will become inflamed and infected, and the swelling will compromise breathing. Nebarnoti also has trouble sleeping at night, will often have the flu, and coughs frequently. His doctors recommended surgery to remove the tissue and help him breathe.

For $545, Nebarnoti can have his tonsillectomy procedure. The total cost covers the procedure, supplies, medications, and inpatient care for four days.

Following his recovery, Nebarnoti will have a much easier time breathing, and he will not catch the flu as frequently. “The nights are the worst time for my son,” shares Nebarnoti’s mother. “I just wish he will get better so that he can sleep well at night.”

Kidus

Kidus is a cute baby boy who loves to walk. His dad enjoys walking with him and holding his hand, and Kidus loves it when his mom carries him on her back. He also loves to watch cartoons. Kidus's dad and mom love each other so much and have a happy life together. Kidus's father is a tailor. His income is very limited and barely enough to sustain the family through the month, but love fills their home, and their lives, with happiness. When Kidus was born his parents learned that he had bladder exstrophy, a rare condition where children are born with an open bladder. His parents faced a challenge that they did not expect in their life, but they are facing it with courage. Kidus needs surgery to perform a procedure to divert his urination to the anal opening & make a pouch bladder from the bowel. He will undergo this surgery on September 28th with our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) and his family needs $1,500 for the procedure. Kidus's dad said, “For thirteen days after his birth we worked hard to get him treatment but no one in the health centres could help us. Some health workers gave us hope and some health workers did not give us any hope." He is hopeful for after surgery, “After he gets his surgery and recovers I want to tell him the truth about his condition and what we went through as a result of it when he grows up. Also, I want to tell him how he got the treatment, about the people who helped him, how God helped him and gave him this healthy life. I will tell him this so he grows up grateful and he lives to support and help others. I want him to be good and caring and God-fearing. I want him to be there for others. I believe kindness is contagious.”
