Ivan is a three-year-old boy and the only child of his single mother, though his father has three other children with his wife. Ivan and his mother live at his grandparent’s home. Ivan’s grandparents are small scale farmers growing mainly maize, vegetables, and green bananas. Ivan’s mother helps her parents in farming to be able to also provide and care for her son.
Ivan was born with a congenital deformity of his toes where they are webbed together. This year, it has been hard for Ivan to play and do all the things his friends like to do.
Fortunately, our medical partner African Mission Healthcare Foundation is helping Ivan receive treatment. On September 2nd, surgeons at their care center will perform a surgery so he will no longer be in pain. Now, his family needs help to fund this $639 procedure.
Ivan’s mother says,”I am not able to afford my son’s treatment cost please help him have his toes corrected. He is complaining of pain more as days go by.”
