Vincent is a 20-year-old and the third born in a family of 10 children. Vincent harvests Khat to make a living but is currently not working due to the COVID-19 pandemic. His parents are small-scale farmers who plant maize, beans, and potatoes. They sell the surplus for additional income.
Four months ago, Vincent began to experience a painful scalp lesion that was increasing in size. His doctor recommends an excision of the scalp mass to ensure that the pain and pressure he is experiencing do not worsen. Fortunately our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. Now, our medical partner is requesting $554 to help fund the cost of the surgery.
Vincent shared,’’ I will be appreciative if given any financial support.’’
