Meet Paul, a father of two children from Kenya. He used to work as a maintenance officer on a flower farm. His wife works as a laborer.

In February, Paul began losing his vision. He underwent an MRI in April and was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It has been recommended that Paul undergo a craniotomy to remove the tumor. If he is not treated, he will be at risk of permanent blindness.

Fortunately, Paul’s surgery is scheduled for July 9. Now, he needs help raising $1,495 to fund treatment.

Paul says, “My wish is to have the tumor resected and be able to regain my sight.”
