Joseph is a young boy from Kenya. Joseph’s parents are subsistence farmers without an external source of income. Joseph is an only child and his family lives together in a small village in Central Kenya.
Joseph has an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage and even death. Fortunately, on February 18th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $423 to fund Joseph’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
“I wish I could have come here earlier,” says Joseph’s mother as he has been having symptoms for more than two years.
