Jessie is a young boy from Kenya and the oldest in a family with three children. His mother is a tailor while his father is employed casually as a matatu driver. His family lives in a village near Nairobi.
Jessie was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Jessie has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Jessie will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 20th. AMHF is requesting $542 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want to join the police force when I grow up,” shared Jessie.
