Brimin is a cheerful three year old boy from Kenya, and he is in pre-kindergarten. Brimin is the youngest of three. His father works as a public transit driver to provide for the family while their mother earns wages from the grocery business to compliment her husband’s earnings. The family lives in a two-roomed iron built rental house.
Brimin 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. Brimin’s elder brother has a similar condition, and their mother is very worried about both her sons future and the obstacles they would face.
Fortunately, Brimin is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on June 19th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $631 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Brimin’s mother says, “I want my child to grow up like other children.”
