Shedrack is an infant from Tanzania. He is the fourth born child to his mother and one of sixteen children to his father. Shedrack’s mother keeps cows and goats and his father works as a guard.
Since birth, Shedrack has had a bilateral inguinal hernia. The hernia may result in intestinal obstruction resulting in tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on July 16th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $566 to fund Shedrack’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Shedrack’s mother shared, “Please help my son get this treatment so that he is no longer in pain and he is able to eat and feed well.”
