Francis is a young boy from Kenya. The second born of two children, Francis, lives with his parents and sibling in a one-room house in Central Kenya. His mother is a stay-at-home mom while his father is a works at their local bus terminus.
Francis was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Francis has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Francis will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on November 28. AMHF is requesting $535 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I will appreciate help to see my young son getting better,” says Francis’ mother.
