Romart is a 17-month-old boy from the Philippines, who is dearly loved by his parents. He enjoys playing and entertaining his mother by dancing, and he giggles a lot.
Romart was diagnosed with an inguinal hernia. His parents are worried for him, but they could not bring him to a doctor because their limited source of income is from collecting garbage and selling it in a small junk shop. On occasion, Romart’s father works as a “sakada”, a sugarcane laborer in the fields near their town to earn $3 a day.
His parents just want what is best for Romart, and after surgery they hope Romart will grow up normally like other children. “We really couldn’t believe that help could be given to us. At first, we were afraid that Romart needed surgery, but the doctor explained to us that this is the best way for Romart to heal. I am very thankful for your help and I pray for a successful surgery for my son,” his mother shared.
$1,437 will fund the hernia repair surgery that Romart needs. Let’s help make it possible.
