Moses is a quiet two-year-old boy. In early 2018, Moses was an orphan rescued by New Life Home in Kisumu. When a new child is rescued, they have a full health examination for birth defects and any other medical condition that might require medical intervention. During Moses’ examination, the physicians diagnosed him with Hirschsprung’s disease, which affects his large intestine and digestive system as a whole. Since then, he has been under a close eye of the medical practitioners in the facility.

After some time, Moses was moved to the organization’s Nairobi branch so that they could bring him to Watsi’s Medical Partner BethanyKids Hospital for review. After some examinations, he was scheduled for surgery, which was to be supported by a national health insurance system. During admission to the hospital awaiting his surgery, Moses became sick and was diagnosed with pneumonia. His surgery had to be postponed so that he could recover from the illness. Once he felt better, Moses was scheduled for surgery again. This important procedure will help him to pass stool properly without any complications.

The orphanage home that rescued Moses has National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) coverage that would have helped pay for Moses’ surgery initially. However, due to his pneumonia, the funds were depleted while he was in the hospital during his illness. NHIF will not approve support for the surgery, so we are raising funds to cover his cost of care.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Moses receive treatment. He is scheduled to undergo an anorectoplasty on January 11th at our medical partner’s care center. This procedure will cost $743, and he needs help raising money.

Moses’ guardian shared, “As a children rescue home, it is our joy when the rescued children are in good health and independent in many ways. For Moses, it will great joy to us for him to be treated.”
