Arobo is a student from Ethiopia with three siblings who are also students. He is a nice boy who is outgoing and playful. Arobo loves to play football with his friends and loves to read books. Arobo’s mother is a widower and their family lives in a remote area. Her income is very limited even to sustain the basic need of the family.
Arobo was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Arobo is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on December 12. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,231 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Arobo’s brother said “We hope he will be healed from his condition after this surgery. And if he heals our mother, I and our sisters will be relived from worry. And he will also be well psychologically.”
