Yabsera underwent corrective surgery for his birth condition.

Yabsera’s surgery was successful and he is back home after fully recovering! This treatment will prevent him from the risk of cancer, hernia, and infertility as he grows.

His mom said: “I am happy for his surgery. I want him to have children in the future. I myself don’t have relatives and I heard this condition won’t allow him to give children one day. And now because of this treatment, he will be able to have children and be healthy. I am thankful.”

Yabsera is a sweet, playful boy from Ethiopia. He loves to watch cartoon films and play hide and seek with his friends from the neighborhood. His favorite food is Shiro, a traditional stew in Ethiopia. Yabsera is also a bright student in grade one, and he loves English class the most of all his subjects. His mother raised him all on her own, doing labor work and washing clothes for income. She shared that she lost her parents when she was young and left her hometown to work in the city. Her income is only enough for the monthly expenses for her and Yabsera.

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

Fortunately, Yabsera will receive assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), and undergo corrective surgery on December 7th. AMH is requesting $754 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

Yabsera’s mom shared, “I hope he will be good with his education. And I hope he will get a good job and earn well. I hope he will lead a quality life in the future. And I hope he will be healthy.”
