Lebahati is a 16-year-old from Tanzania. He is the third child in a family of seven. He loves playing football.

After Lebahati was born, he began to experience unpleasant symptoms. The family walked a long distance to visit the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a bowel malformation. The family learned that he would need to undergo several procedures to correct the condition.

Lebahati’s father borrowed money from friends to pay for the first procedure, but his parents were unable to raise enough money to pay for further treatment. Fortunately, the family learned about our medical partner’s care center and came seeking help.

Now, Lebahati is scheduled to undergo another corrective surgery on July 11. This treatment will cost $1,500, and his family needs help raising these funds.

He says, “Help me because I also want to go to school too.”
