Yesuf is a 2-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He is a sweet child who loves people and being with other kids. He also loves eating sweets and fruits. Yesuf is the second child to his parents. His mom used to work as a domestic worker in people’s house before, but she is now sick herself and unable to work. His dad is a shoeshiner and earns a humble income to help support their family’s needs.
Yesuf was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Yesuf has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Yesuf will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 4th. AMHF is requesting $561 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Yesuf’s mom shared, “It is my hope that my child heals and goes to school and learns the holy Quran. ”
