Kirshan will now be able to lead a healthy reproductive life.

“Poor people like us have to sell our livelihood, the land, in order to get our family members treated, but we didn’t have to do anything,” says Kirshan’s mother. “I’d like to thank the donors who funded the treatment and I hope other children like him also get the treatment needed.”

Kirshan is a 7-year-old boy with an undescended testicle, a common abnormality that if left untreated, could lead to infertility later in life.

Luckily, Kirshan can have surgery to correct his condition. His doctors say that surgery will “reduce the risk of infertility, allowing Kirshan to lead a normal life.”

Kirshan is a sweet, shy boy who is the youngest of five siblings. He loves playing football and marbles with his brothers, and wants to study science so he can become a doctor one day. Kirshan’s father runs a tea stall, where he earns enough money to send his children to school, but not to pay for the medical care Kirshan needs. Kirshan’s family hopes we can raise the money he needs to get treatment.
