Jayden is a 16-month-old baby boy from Kenya. He lives with his mother, who is a college student.
Jayden has been diagnosed with hypospadias, a congenital disorder where the urethra is not on the tip of the penis. If left untreated, Jayden is at risk of urinary tract infections and fertility issues in the future. When he grows up, he will not be able to pass urine while standing like other boys.
Jayden is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on July 6. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want my son to grow up knowing that we gave him the best we could, even in the absence of his father. We will be grateful for any help towards Jayden’s surgical care.” says Jayden’s mother.
