Justine is a nine-year-old student and has a twin brother. They have two other siblings and Justine’s mother is raising her children on her own. She sells mandazi by the roadside to make a living and provide for her family.
For seven years, Justine has had an inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain and discomfort, and sometimes he cannot sleep. He has stopped going to school while he tries to seek treatment.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Justine to receive treatment. On May 12th, Justine will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $566 to fund Justine’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Justine’s mother shared, “I have always wanted to seek treatment for my son but due to financial challenges I have not been able to afford the treatment cost. If there is a chance for my son to have his condition corrected I would be very grateful.”
