Elvis is a six-year-old boy from Kenya. He lives with his family in Nairobi. According to the staff at our medical partner’s care center, BethanyKids Kijabe Hospital, he is sharp, playful, and full of life.
Elvis was born with penoscrotal hypospadias—a condition in which the urethral orifice is abnormally placed. If left untreated, he is likely to experience social stigma and impotence.
Elvis is scheduled to undergo treatment on March 29. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the cost of the operation. After surgery, Elvis will be able to grow and develop normally.
“You are heaven-sent because we could not do it without your assistance,” his mother says.
