Fuad underwent corrective surgery.

The surgery was successful, testicles were descended in the scrotum and Fuad got out of the ward with full recovery. He is no longer at risk of testicular torsion.

Fuad’s guardian said “I am so happy that he got the surgery. Not just for Fuad but I know how Watsi supports children and I am so thankful for all that it is doing for sick vulnerable children. According to the Bible, it is blessed to give than to receive. I like to thank Watsi for all the giving they are doing.”

Fuad is a teenager from Ethiopia. He was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Fuad has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.

Fuad will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on August 29. AMHF is requesting $717 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

His guardian says, “We don’t have budget for surgery. This is why we brought him in to your attention. And we are hopeful that he get this surgery with your support.”

Joy

Joy is the first born child in her family. She is two weeks old. Their young family is feeling privileged and happy to welcome their firstborn baby, however, they are saddened by the fact that their baby needs medical care for her foot. Her condition has caused Joy’s parents a lot of worry about their daughter’s future. Joy’s mother is a housewife who completed secondary school and never was able to proceed to college due to a lack of funds. Joy's father just completed college and hasn’t been employed yet. The family doesn’t have a house of their own and still lives with their parents. When Joy was six days old, she was brought to the hospital by her mother with concerns of umbilical code sepsis. She was admitted to receive IV antibiotics and general medical management. While receiving medication in the ward, she developed wounds on her leg due to several attempts of cannulation. Over time her condition worsened and her wounds became septic. After several efforts to clean her wounds, it was noticed that her foot was not healing. After a long consultation with the medical team, the possibility of amputation was suggested to avoid further affecting her entire leg. Joy is in need and her family's inability to pay for the surgery has made them live with constant anxiety and worry about her future. Their family is appealing for financial assistance. Joy’s mother says, “I feel sorry about my child. It is painful for her to undergo this while she is just a few days old. Despite this, I will work hard to make her happy as she grows up."
