Sammuel underwent a hernia repair surgery.

Sammuel’s surgery proceeded as planned and he is recovering well! In addition to preventing pain and discomfort as a result of the hernia, this treatment will prevent bowel obstruction and other serious complications.

Sammuel’s mom shared, “I am so happy for the surgery Sammuel received. The staffs and the quality service is beyond my expectation. Now that he got this surgery, I believe he will focus on his education and achieve big in his life.”

Sammuel is an 11-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He is very outgoing and happy, and loves cycling and playing football. Sammuel is in grade five and his favorite subject is mathematics. He attends a government-run school, where his school uniform and meals at schools are supported. Sammuel’s mom is a single mom, and works to support herself and her son by washing clothes in their community. Sammuel’s dad is a guard in a church and earns limited income, so he cannot support Sammuel and his mom consistently.

Since his birth, Sammuel has had a right inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and weakness in his lower abdominal area. He will need to have surgery in order to allow him to be more active and without pain.

Fortunately, on March 9th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $512 to fund Sammuel’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently and resume more of his favorite hobbies.

His mom shared, “Sammuel is my only child and I struggled a lot to raise him. Now I don’t need any other life but to raise him well and to educate him. I always dream of him getting older and becoming somebody.”
