Travin is a happy and curious six-year-old. His grandparents brought him up, as his father passed away in a car accident when Travin was only three months old. His grandparents both work as small-scale farmers. Travin loves to play and build small houses, and his grandmother hopes he will become an engineer one day.

Travin has had a right inguinal hernia for a while. He experiences swelling that increases when he laughs or lifts heavy objects, such as carrying a water jerrycan. His condition also worsened after he fell while he was playing recently. He visited the hospital at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), and doctors recommended surgery to help him finally heal.

Fortunately, on January 4th, Travin will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Upon recovery, he will be able to live more comfortably and confidently. AMH is requesting $230 to fund Travin’s surgery.

Travin’s grandmother shared, “Travin is all I have. He even helps me fetch water and firewood. Please help me reduce the pain my grandson is experiencing.”
