Prince is a 8-year-old boy and the second born in a family of four children. Prince’s father sells maize and his mother plants vegetables, which she is able to sell sometimes to supplement her husband’s earnings. His family feels they are not well off financially, but proud to own a small house that they live in.
Prince was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Prince has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Prince will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on May 27th. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is requesting $569 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Prince’s mother shared, “It is very difficult for us as a family to raise the required funds for Prince’s surgery. We are requesting financial help.”
