Patrick is a 5-month-old from Kenya. Having to feed a family of four children, his parents shared that they strain to put food on the table. Patrick’s mother washes clothes for their neighbors to earn a few coins and his father does any casual jobs that he can come across.
Since birth, Patrick has had a right inguinal hernia. If not treated, this hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage or tissue death. Fortunately, on August 27th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $444 to fund Patrick’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
Patrick’s mother says, “Seeing Patrick treated will bring great joy to us as a family.”
