Roy is a young boy from Kenya who was born with a medical condition called hypospadias. This is a condition where the urethral opening is abnormally placed. Roy’s mother is a housewife while his father hawks household items to sustain the family needs. The family of two children lives in their own built two-room house in Central Kenya.
Roy’s parents were advised to give time until he was much older before they could bring him to hospital. He was taken to two other hospitals when he turned 1 year but was not assisted. His mother saw a message about our program and came to Kijabe Hospital with hopes of having her son treated.
Fortunately, Roy is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on December 6th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“Thank you for your willingness to help my son get treatment,” shared Roy’s mother.
