Emmanuel is a small baby boy from Kenya. Emmanuel’s father is a casual laborer in Kayole and sometimes goes out his way to carry luggage for people so that he can provide for his family of two children. Because of the extra care Emmanuel needs, his mother is not able to go look for work.
Emmanuel was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. He needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.
Emmanuel is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct his condition on August 27th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,393 to cover the total cost of Emmanuel’s procedure and care.
After his recovery, Emmanuel will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.
Emmanuel’s mother says, “I am very hopeful that our son will be treated.”
