Peter is a student from Kenya and an aspiring judge. He is quiet and composed and arrived in the company of his school social worker. The teenage boy in class seven. Peter lives with his aged mother and six siblings in Miango village Central-Kenya. He is the fifth born and they all depend on the little their mother makes. A few years back, due to domestic wrangles, Peter’s aged father moved out of their home and now lives alone.
Since two years ago, Peter has had a right hydrocele. This causes him pain and discomfort and is affecting his studies. Fortunately, on March 3rd, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $423 to fund Peter’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
“I want to be a judge when I grow up,” says Peter.
