March 7, 2021

Mohammed is a four-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He is a sweet and playful boy who loves to play with toy cars. He also loves to play with his younger brother. His mom and dad are returnees from Saudi Arabia. He did not start school as a result of COVID-19, but his mom plans to have him start by next year. His mom is a housewife and his dad does business selling socks on the street, but they shared this his income is not enough to meet the needs of the family.

Mohammed was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one of the testicles does not descend. If left untreated, Mohammed could have an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.

Fortunately, Mohammed is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 18th. He will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). AMH is requesting $754 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

His mom shared, “for my child, I wish a good personality and behavior. I hope he will be a good person and that he will serve his country.”
