Yabesera

Yabesera is a young boy from Ethiopia. Yabsira has a twin sister named Tseganesh. They both are cute toddlers and Yabsira loves to play with his sister Tseganesh. They have an older brother too. Yabsira’s dad is a shoe-shiner with limited income while his mom is a housewife and takes care of their babies at home. Yabesera 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. Unfortunately, he contracted measles last year and could not undergo surgery. His mother brought him to our facility and requested to proceed with the surgery now and the family appeals for financial help. Fortunately, Yabesera is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on January 14th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,231 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Yabsira’s mom said, “We can’t afford the medical bill. I used to wash clothes for income but once the children were born, I had to take care of them. We are living by the income of my husband only and it is very limited to maintain the family’s needs. The community helps us by giving food and milk for our babies. But still, they are nutritionally badly affected. They didn’t start walking as a result of it. We came here by the support of an organization. We are here with the hope of getting treatment for our boy.”
