May 1, 2019

Cherenet is a toddler from Ethiopia. He loves to play and laugh with kids in his age. His mom is a single mother.

Cherenet was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Cherenet has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.

Cherenet will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on May 2. AMHF is requesting $1,021 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

His mothers says, “All I want is for him to be cured. I hope my child will get the treatment and be healed.”
