Jackson is a three-year-old boy and loving big brother. His father’s work at the welding shop provides the main source of income for the family. His earnings are just enough to support the household. Jackson’s mother is not working so she can take care of Jackson and his very young sibling. The family currently lives in a small rented house.
Jackson was born with hypospadias, which causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Jackson is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on July 27th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $735 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Jackson’s mother says, “It is difficult for us to raise the money for his treatment as we always rely on the National Insurance, which has turned us down.”
