Daniel is a 12-year-old boy who lives with his three siblings and parents in a two-room house in central Kenya. Daniel was playing in school when he accidentally fell and injured his groin. When treating their son, his parents noticed that he has an abnormal condition in a sensitive area.
Daniel has been diagnosed with an undescended testis. He needs to undergo an orchidopexy, a repair surgery. If he is not treated, Daniel is likely to develop testicular cancer or a hernia. He is also at risk of infertility.
His parents are farmers. They contributed $51, but they are unable to afford this treatment. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting an additional $535 to fund this treatment. Daniel will undergo surgery on February 3.
