Ken is a newborn baby from Kenya. He is the third child in his family, with siblings of six and ten years of age. Ken’s mother is a cleaner at a government office, and his father is a farmer. The family lives in a two-roomed wooden house in their ancestral land. Their income is limited.

Ken was born with a malformation in a sensitive area. On November 18, he underwent the first surgery of a treatment process that will take three months. This treatment will prevent Ken from experiencing pain, discomfort, and other complications. His family needs our help to fund this $1,500 procedure.
