Harrison is a nine month old baby from Kenya. He is the youngest in a family of three children. Harrison’s father works as a casual laborer while his mother sells second hand clothes.
A few days ago, Harrison began to experience diarrhea and vomiting and could not even retain breast milk. The mother took him to a dispensary and was advised to take him to a hospital. Since they didn’t have money they stayed at home, but last night his abdomen began to swell. A scan has showed intussusception, a small bowel obstruction. Surgeons recommend an emergency laparotomy.
If not treated Harrison will continue having serious complications that may lead to death. Fortunately our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. Now, Harrison needs your help to fund the $788 cost of this procedure.
“I am so worried about my baby, but I have no means of paying for this life-saving surgery. I plead for help so that my baby can be well again,” shared Harrison’s mother.
