Liam is a 3-month-old baby from Kenya. Liam was diagnosed with hypospadias immediately after birth. Having not seen such a condition before, Liam’s mother was shocked and didn’t know what to do. She went ahead to consult more about the condition from the medical practitioner who offered her advice. The facility where he was born was not in a position to repair the condition and the physician referred them to Bethanykids Hospital for treatment. Upon arrival, Liam was examined and surgery is recommended.
Liam’s mother recently started selling clothes in the local shopping centre. To supplement the daily earnings of his mother, his father is a bodaboda taxi driver in their community. With no other source of income, the family is not able to raise the required amount for their child’s surgery. Liam’s mother is appealing for financial help.
Liam was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Without treatment, he will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of infertility.
Fortunately, Liam is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on October 13th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $735 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Liam’s mother shared, “It is very difficult for us to raise any money for Liam’s treatment. As a family, any help offered to us will be appreciated.”
