Esther is a woman from Kenya. She is married and has four children. Her husband makes a living by making and repairing locks.

After the delivery of her last child, Esther developed severe pain. She has visited several hospitals but has not gotten well. Finally, a scan revealed that she has cholelithiasis, or gallstones. If not treated, Esther may experience complications.

Fortunately, she is scheduled to undergo surgery on September 25 to treat her condition. Now, she needs help raising $750 to fund treatment.

She says, “I have a new born and another child that needs my care. I plead for help and hope my treatment will be successful. I can’t wait to see myself able to breastfeed my baby.”
