Liam is 3-year-old and the only child in his family. His mother is a housewife without a source of income and his father is a small-scale farmer tending food crops. They occasionally can sell crops when there’s surplus to help earn more for their family. The income from the venture is small and inconsistent, and not sufficient to help pay for the treatment Liam requires.
In August 2020, Liam was diagnosed with right inguinal hernia. He successfully had a right hernia repair surgery last year in August with support from Watsi donors. Unfortunately, doctors have now diagnosed a recurrence on his left side. He now has pains and a swollen stomach. Fortunately, on December 7th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $585 to fund Liam’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
Liam’s mother says, “We had hoped our kid was doing well. This hernia is making his stomach swell and in pain. He needs this treatment urgently to relieve these discomforts.”
