Agape is a young boy from Tanzania. He is the last-born child in a family of four children. Agape loves watching television and coloring books. His father is a farmer, and his mother is a religion teacher in a local school.

For two years, Agape has been experiencing regular fevers, difficulty swallowing, and sleep apnea. Frequent illness has caused his parents to spend a lot of their earnings on hospital visits. Agape was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Agape, which is scheduled to take place on April 12. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Agape of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

Agape’s father says, “Thank you for helping my son get this treatment, he suffers throughout the night with breathing heavily and wakes up crying. Please help him get well.”
