about Glen's recovery.

September 13, 2018

Glen is a baby from Kenya. He is the youngest in a family of three children. His 20-year-old mother is a housewife, while his father is a motorcycle taxi rider. They live in their ancestral land.

Glen has hydrocephalus, a condition characterized by increased head size and sunken eyes. He received previous treatment, but the procedure was not successful. If not treated again, Glen will be at risk of neurological damage due to the pressure in his brain.

Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo brain surgery on September 14. Now, his family needs help raising $634 to fund the procedure.

Glen’s mother says, “My hope is to see my child treated and lead a normal life. It is my prayer.”
