Yerose underwent hernia surgery.

Yerosen’s treatment was successful and has prevented the chance of bowel obstruction, pain and discomfort that the Hernia caused. Yerosen is recovering well from the surgery.

Yerosen’s parent said “Our stay in the hospital was very good. He is getting all the help he needs. And the outcome of the surgery is good. We are very happy for this surgery. And we are very thankful for our sponsor Watsi. God bless their work and reward them for their good deed.”

Yerose is a child from Ethiopia. Since birth, Yerose has had an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on August 20, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $562 to fund Yerose’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Yerose’s father says, “We couldn’t get him the necessary treatment because the waiting list is too long in public referral hospital and we did not receive any call. Now we came here with a hope to get treatment by a recommendation of another physician.”

Margret

Margret is a 69-year-old woman - a mother of five children and a grandmother to 13 children. She lives in a thatched house with her family. She and her husband are farmers and rely on seasonal farm products for their income. Due to a recent drought on their land, they do not have any farm products to sell. Margret and her husband are aging and shared that they are limited in how they can care for themselves. They also shared that their children are married but do not have stable jobs yet to help support the family. One week ago, Margret’s poor vision caused her to fall on her walk to the farm. She fell on her left hand and can longer use it or put any weight on it. Her daughter-in-law bought her to the hospital for an X-Ray. After an assessment by the doctor, she was diagnosed with a left distal humerus fracture, and surgery was recommended. Currently, Margret is experiencing pain in her left hand and requires 24-hour care from her daughter-in-law. On October 26th, Margret will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation, with our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). This surgery will alleviate her pain and bring healing and restoration to the functioning of her left hand. She will be able to carry out her day-to-day activities and take care of herself again. AMH is requesting $941 to help fund this procedure. Margret shared, “I am in pain. I hope I get treated soon and be able to use my hand again. Please help me.”
