Bridon is a 2-year-old boy from Meru County in Kenya. After he was born, his parents noticed a potential health issue and consulted a doctor. Bridon was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Bridon has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Bridon is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on April 1st with assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). AMHF is requesting $569 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Bridon’s mother shared, “Neither my husband nor myself are financially able to raise enough money for Bridon’s surgery. Currently, we barely make enough for our family but I am very hopeful that Bridon will be treated.”
