John is a baby from Kenya. John’s father, the family’s sole breadwinner, is employed casually to cut trees. His mother on the other hand is a full-time mom. His family lives in a single-rental house in Central Kenya. With limited income of $120 on average per month, John’s father is not able to raise the funds needed for his son’s treatment.
John was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of future infertility.
Fortunately, John is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 10th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $700 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“If only I can see him urinate normally, I’ll be very happy,” says John’s mother.
