Meki is a child from Kenya. Since birth, Meki has been experiencing difficulty breathing. Frequent illness has caused his parents to worry and spend their little earnings on medication. He was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils and adenoids, which are the soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Without treatment, this condition will cause Meki’s symptoms to persist and possibly even intensify.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $779 to fund an adenotonsillectomy for Meki, which is scheduled to take place on July 9. Surgeons will remove his tonsils and adenoids, hopefully relieving Meki of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.
Meki’s mother says, “My hope is to have my son treated and being able to breathe. Please help me.”
