Daniel is a four-year-old boy from Kenya. He has been diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. When he visited our medical partner, he had a visible swelling on his lower abdomen. His condition, which developed in October, made him feel shy around other children.
On December 5, Daniel underwent surgery to repair the hernia. This surgery reduced his risk of a strangulated hernia.
Daniel is the youngest child in his family. He was adopted by his parents at a young age. His parents are farmers who grow food and keep livestock. They live in a wooden house. They cannot afford Daniel’s care, so our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $528 in funding.
“I want my boy to be well and start schooling like a normal child,” says Daniel’s mother. Fortunately, he is scheduled to start school in January.
