Kennedy is a boy from Tanzania. Since he was one year old, Kennedy has been experiencing a sore throat and difficulty swallowing. Because of the condition, he has difficulty eating and sleeping. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Kennedy’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Kennedy, which is scheduled to take place on May 31. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Kennedy of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Kennedy’s mother says, “We cannot afford our son’s surgery but would really love to see him get better. We will always be grateful if you help support his surgery.”
