Bekila is an adorable three-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He loves to spend his time with his mother and to play with other children.
Since birth, Bekila has had an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage and death. Fortunately, on October 25, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $487 to fund Bekila’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
His father says, “We can’t pay for the surgery because we are poor farmers who strive to maintain our daily bread. Since in our area we get rain once in a year our harvest from our farm is very low. I am a student and I am studying farming and it is my hope to change my life by starting a government job.”
