Ar Kar is a 14-year-old boy from Burma. Currently, Ar Kar’s eyes are sensitive to light and bright lights hurt his eyes. He cannot see far and he sometimes has a headache. His mother has already noticed that Ar Kar’s eye is gradually getting bigger. His mother is worried that his eyes will continue to increase in size.

Doctors want Ar Kar to undergo an MRI, an imaging procedure that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce images of bodily organs. This scan will hopefully help doctors diagnose his condition and formulate an appropriate treatment plan.

Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $814 to cover the cost of Ar Kar’s MRI and care, scheduled for July 5.

Peter

Peter is a young boy from Kenya. Peter was diagnosed with left undescended testis in mid-2018. This is a condition where the testis cannot be felt in the scrotal sac as expected in a baby boy soon after birth. For a year now, Peter has been under her grandmother’s care. He recently began complaining of abdominal pains. Painkillers could barely ease the pain. From the nearest local clinic, ultrasound scanning revealed that Peter has a left undescended testis. The funds needed were, however, way beyond what Peter’s grandmother could raise. She resigned to fate until recently when a friend told them about the SAFE program at Kijabe hospital. Upon review in our facility, surgery was advised. If not treated, Peter is at risk of developing testicular cancer and/or inguinal hernia and potentially a testicular torsion. Peter is the third born of four children. He lives with his widowed maternal grandmother and siblings in a two-room house in Central Kenya. His parents abandoned him and his siblings and do not offer any assistance whatsoever. Peter’s grandmother has three grown children and does subsistence farming to provide just enough for her grandchildren and herself. Peter is in class one and aspires to be a pilot in future. His favorite subject is mathematics. His grandmother is appealing for help to see him get treated. Peter will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on September 27th. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. “I want to be a pilot when I grow up,” says Peter
