Maxwell is a two-year-old boy from Kenya. Maxwell’s mother works casually in construction sites. His father left them when he learned of his son’s condition. Maxwell is an only child and lives with his mother in a single-rental house in Kiharo Village in Central Kenya.
Maxwell was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Maxwell is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on February 25th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“Life is very tough. I earn very little from helping out on construction sites and it cannot cater for the surgery my son needs. Please help me,” says Maxwell’s mother.
