Michael is a young boy from Kenya, and the last born of three children. He lives with his parents and siblings in a two-room house in the Eastern region of Kenya. Michael’s siblings are enrolled in school and doing fine. His mother is a stay-at-home mom while his father is employed as a night watchman in someone’s homestead. With a monthly income of $70, Michael’s parents are barely able to meet the family’s daily needs.
Michael 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, Michael is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on February 25th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“My husband’s income is so little. Please help us,” says Michael’s mother.
