Samwel is a baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four children.

He has been experiencing difficulty breathing, sleeping, and eating. Samwel was recently diagnosed with enlarged tonsils, which, if not treated, will cause his symptoms to persist and possibly intensify over time.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $633 to fund a tonsillectomy for Samwel, which is scheduled to take place on November 2. Surgeons will remove his tonsils, hopefully relieving Samwel of his symptoms and helping him live more comfortably.

Samwel’s father says, “My son needs surgery of which I cannot afford. Please help my son.”
