Stephen is a young student from Kenya. His father is employed casually at a construction site while his mother hawks fruits to supplement the family’s income. Stephen is in class three and aspires to be a pilot one day.
Stephen was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Stephen has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Stephen will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on February 5th. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want to a pilot when I grow up,” says Stephen.
