Jovin is a beautiful one-month-old baby boy from Tanzania and the first child born to his young parents. Jovin’s parents are small scale farmers of maize and vegetables for their family’s food and for their living.
Since birth, Jovin has had a right inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia could result in intestinal tissue death or damage.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Jovin to receive treatment. On May 5th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Now, AMH is requesting $566 to fund Jovin’s surgery.
Jovin’s father shared, “the cost of treating our son’s condition is too high for us to afford and he is suffering. Please help if possible.”
