David is a young boy from Kenya. His father is a carpenter and the business has not been going well lately since the covid-19 pandemic started. His mother does casual jobs for government offices and does not earn much. Both parents limited work has to sustain their family of two children, where David is the youngest.
Since late last year, David has had a right inguinal hernia. If not treated, he may suffer intestinal obstuction resulting to tissue damage or tissue death. Fortunately, on August 26th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $444 to fund David’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
David’s mother says, “I am very much hopeful that my son will be treated.”
