Yared did not undergo hernia surgery.

Yared’s surgery did not take place as planned because he was found to have pneumonia. He was put under medication and once he was better, the doctors opted to first treat the hydrocephalus he suffered before the hernia since that was more life-threatening. Sadly, on the 18th of November, Yared suffered cardiac arrest and passed away.

Yared is a child from Ethiopia. Heis a cute baby who loves to play with other kids. He has one sister and one brother who love to play with him. His mom is a single parent. She takes care of her kids alone but has not been working after she gave birth to Yared. She had a small restaurant that she operated to meet the family’s needs. Now she is supporting her family on the little savings she had from that business while their father helps by educating the kids

For some time now, Yared has had an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on September 25th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $562 to fund Yared’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Yared’s mom said, “I am so afraid of the operation but I trust this in God’s hand. What God plans for us is going to happen. I brought him here when people kept telling me to take him to monasteries for a holy water baptism.”

San

San is a 38-year-old woman who lives with her daughter and two sons in a village near Mae Sot, Thailand. San’s two sons work as agricultural day labourers on a farm. San’s daughter is a second grade student. San stopped working on the farm about four months ago when she first developed problems with her vision. The money that her two sons earn is not enough to cover their household expenses and pay for her daughter’s school fees since she stopped working. They have had to borrow money to pay for basics like food. San has cataract and glaucoma. Currently, San has lost most of her vision in her right eye. Her right eye is painful and always waters. If she tries to focus her vision to make out someone’s face, her eyes will hurt, and she develops a headache. In her free time, San like to clean her house and plant vegetables. She said, “I hope that I will get better soon so that I can go back to work and pay back my debts. I want to support my daughter so that she can become an educated person. I want to live happily with my family for the rest of my life.” Our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, is requesting $1,500 to fund lens replacement surgery for San. On February 22nd, doctors will perform a lens replacement, during which they will remove San's natural lenses and replace them with an intraocular lens implant in each eye. After recovery, she will be able to see clearly. Now, she needs help to fund this $1,500 procedure. San said, “I am so upset that my condition worsens every day. I cannot sleep well because I am worried about what will happen if I do not get better. I am upset that I cannot work and my two sons have to work and support me. I feel so sad for my two sons.’’
