Hermon underwent life-changing surgery for his birth condition.

Hermon’s surgery to treat his condition was a success. This treatment will significantly reduce his risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility issues in the future.

His mom said: “I promised God that if He healed my baby I will lead a life that honors him. I believe God created us all for a purpose and I hope Hermon will find that purpose and live to achieve it. And he gave me back Hermon from the operating room. I am so happy!”

Hermon is a sweet 4-year-old boy who loves people and being with others. His name means God’s gift. He loves playing video games and loves to be with his father and uncle. Hermon is adorable and playful, and is always smiling. His mom is raising him from home after leaving her business when he was born. His dad is a storekeeper in a government shop. His income is low to support the needs of their family. Sometimes mom tries to work as a broker carrying her child on her back and her family tries to offer financial support for their living too.

Hermon was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Hermon has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.

Hermon will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on November 16th. AMHF is requesting $754 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

His mom said “I hope he will get to attend school like any other child. I hope he will grow loving God and serving Him. ”
