Giovan is a baby from Tanzania. His mother is a tailor, while his father repairs mobile phones to earn a living and support his family.
Since he was two months old, Giovan has been experiencing fevers, sleep apnea, and weight loss. He is frequently ill and on constant medication. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Giovan’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $609 to fund an adenoidectomy for Giovan, which is scheduled to take place on January 4. Surgeons will remove his adenoids, hopefully relieving Giovan of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Giovan’s mother says, “I am so happy for the treatment will get. May God bless you abundantly.”
