Luhan is an eight-month-old baby boy living with his mother and grandparents. Luhan’s young mother gave birth to him after finishing her school examinations, and has recently started high school. Luhan spends most of his time with his grandparents when his mother is in school. His grandfather is a construction worker, and his grandmother works as much as her past back injury allows her to in order to help support their family.
Since birth, Luhan has been diagnosed with inguinal hernia, which may result in intestinal tissue damage and death if left untreated. Luhan is often irritable and cries a lot due to the discomfort. Fortunately, on July 21st, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $444 to fund Luhan’s surgery, which will relieve him of the uncomfortable symptoms so he can grow up healthily.
Luhan’s grandmother says, “I almost gave up before coming to BethanyKids hospital. After the warm welcome I received, my prayer now is for Luhan to be treated.”
