Kennedy is a casual laborer from Kenya. He sells hats along the streets to make ends meet.

Kennedy has a closed femur fracture. He is not able to walk or move and is in a lot of pain.

Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On June 5, Kennedy will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. This procedure will enable Kennedy to heal and walk again. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,451 to fund this procedure.

Kennedy says, “I would like to be treated and resume my duties to secure my future.”

Amen

Amen is a sweet 6-year-old boy from Ethiopia who loves people and being with others. He is a student in grade 3. He loves to go to school and playing with his friends. His mom raises him alone. His dad has been in prison for more than four years now, and, unfortunately, the family of Amen’s father pushed his mom and him away saying they wouldn't have sick children in their lineage and they don’t want to support them. Amen’s mom now lives with her sister. She washes people’s clothes in the neighborhood for a living. Her income is very low and can barely support herself and her child. Amen was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Amen has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future. Amen will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on January 28th. AMHF is requesting $717 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Amen’s mom said, “I am so happy for my son getting such a medical chance. He was scheduled for surgery in 2016 but was put on a waiting list in a government hospital and we have never got a call until now. I lost all my hope that the hospital would call. If not for this chance he would stay at home affected psychologically for the rest of his life. But now, I have hope he will lead a better quality life after the surgery. ”
