Allan is a 4-month-old baby and the second born in a family of two children. Allan’s mother is a homemaker, while his father works as a boda-boda taxi driver. Their family lives in a 2-room rental house and shared that they do not currently have any insurance coverage and cannot cover the costs of the procedure that Allan needs.
Allan is experiencing a left inguinal hernia, which requires surgery to address the risk of complications. Without treatment, there is a risk that the hernia can become stuck or block blood flow to the intestine.
Fortunately, on November 24th, Allan will undergo repair surgery at the hospital of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). AMH is requesting $585 to fund Allan’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will allow him to live more comfortably.
Allan’s mother shared, “Our baby is small and already having several hospital visits. If not treated, this will affect his life even in the future.”
