Alvin is a baby from Tanzania. He is a charming and very playful little boy and the only child to his young parents. His father is in a different city seeking casual electrical jobs to be able to make a living while his mother stays at home caring for him.
Since December 2019, Alvin has had inguinal hernia. This causes him pain making him to cry a lot and often not sleeping at all. Fortunately, on March 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at Watsi’s medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $539 to fund Alvin’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Alvin’s mother says “We are unable to afford our son’s treatment cost kindly help us and save him from the discomfort and pain he goes through when the swelling appears.”
