Azariyas is a curious and active toddler from Ethiopia who loves to play with his parents. He is an only child, and he loves running and playing football. His father is a day laborer, who also farms a small piece of land. His mother is a housewife, and was a student before she gave birth.
Azariyas was born with hypospadias, a birth condition that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility and other complications.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Azariyas receive treatment. On November 4th, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $1,293 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Azariyas’s father shared with a hopeful smile, “After the treatment, I hope our boy will heal and start to stand and pee. One day I hope he will reach a place in life that I couldn’t.”
