Peter is an eight-year-old boy from Kenya. He is outgoing and a bit cheeky. The family of six children relies on their mother’s limited income from peasant farming and their father’s goat slaughtering wage work he gets from time to time.
Peter was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Peter has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Peter will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on February 17th. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want to be a driver when I grow up,” says Peter.
