Arthur is a child from Kenya. He is the second born in a family of two kids. His mother shared that she used to work in a hotel, but due to the COVID-19 crisis she lost her job and so now is unable to work. Arthur’s father is a seller of assorted small items. His job is just enough to put food on the table for his family.
Arthur was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Arthur has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Arthur will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on August 20th. AMHF is requesting $483 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“It is very bad having a sick child and not being able to cover his medical expenses because of the COVID-19 pandemic. I plead for your support so that he can continue to grow up normally like other boys,” shared Arthur’s mother.
