Francis is a ten-year-old from Kenya. He is a very playful boy who lives with his grandmother and sister. Francis’ grandparents are small-scale farmers.
In November of 2019, Francis developed an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage that could prove fatal Fortunately, on June 16, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $465 to fund Francis’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
Francis’ grandmother says, “I will be happy when Francis is treated.”
