Patricia is a 35-year-old tailor. In university, Patricia pursued a degree in development studies, and after graduation, she was employed by a bank. During her first pregnancy, Patricia lost her job and could not find any other formal employment. She ventured into tailoring, where she now earns a living for the family. Patricia is married to a secondary school teacher who is very supportive of her. The couple owns a semi-permanent house near a trading center.

Patricia has three children, two of whom are in primary school, the first child is in grade one, and the other child is in preschool. During her free time, she enjoys reading.

Patricia is currently expecting her fourth child and has been diligent in her antenatal care for her new baby. She looks forward to delivering this baby safely. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section sothey can ensure the safety of both mother and child.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Patricia undergo a C-Section on November 10th. This procedure will cost $252, which is out of reach for their family and Patricia needs your support to raise the funds.

Patricia says, “I beseech your financial support so that I can deliver safely and resume my usual activities, for which I will be grateful. After delivery, I’ll thank God.”

Emily

Emily is a newborn baby from Kenya. She is the third born in a family of three children. Her mother is a stay-at-home mum to help raise their kids and their family relies on their father's to provide for their needs. Her father does small-scale farming and other casual jobs like ploughing farms for people. Emily has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of her condition, Emily has been experiencing an increasing head circumference since she was two months old. Her parents thought it would stop and she would grow healthier, but it did not. Her parents took Emily to a hospital in Narok town where she was examined and immediately referred to Bethanykids hospital's specialist team for treatment. On arrival, she was examined, diagnosed with hydrocephalus and sent for a scan. The family did not have money to cater for the CT scan and opted to go back home and have the scan done when they got money. Luckily, a neighbor lent them money for the CT scan, which was done, and they were able to bring back the results. She is now scheduled for surgery as soon as possible to protect her brain from being damaged by the excess fluid in the head. Without treatment, Emily will experience severe physical and developmental delays. Her family does not have medical insurance coverage and cannot raise the required amount of money to cater for the hospital bill. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $720 to cover the cost of surgery for Emily that will treat her hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 2nd and will drain the excess fluid from Emily's brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Emily will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl. Emily’s father says, “I always try to see things from a positive side, and I know that God will avail the required healing for our daughter.”
