Emmanuel is a newborn baby and the second child in his family. His mother used to sell maize in a market near their home before she gave birth to Emmanuel. After giving birth, she hasn’t yet returned to her business since she has been taking care of Emmanuel. They shared that his father works on a construction site and the daily work is hard to come by.
Since birth, Emmanuel has had a left inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage or even death. Fortunately, on May 8th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $444 to fund Emmanuel’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
Emmanuel’s mother says, “As a family, it is very hard for us to raise money for Emmanuel’s surgery due to our poor financial capabilities. Any financial help offered to us will be highly appreciated.”
