Yonas is a child from Ethiopia. He is an outstanding student whose good grades earned him a sponsorship to study in an international school. He enjoys studying language and playing volleyball with his friends. His mother is a single mother who makes injera (flat Ethiopian bread) for a living.
Yonas 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 infertility.
Fortunately, Yonas is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on January 23. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,231 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
His mother says, “It is our hope to get the surgery and to find our child in a better physical status.”
