Jimmy is a young student from Kenya. Jimmy lives with his elder brother after their mother left them in 2010 feigning to go to work never to be seen again. He has been in school under the mercies of his teachers and well-wishers. His elder brother the sole provider washes cars and does construction tasks to sustain his needs and those of his younger brother.
Jimmy was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Jimmy is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on December 2nd. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I hope I will get treated,” says Jimmy.
