Stanley is a child from Kenya. He is a bright composed boy. Stanley, the seventh of seven children, is in pre-school and doing well in his studies. Stanley’s parents are subsistence farmers without an external source of income. They have other children to tend to who are in school with the firstborn in the fourth year in high school.
Stanley was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Stanley has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
Stanley will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on August 26th. AMHF is requesting $542 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“I want to be a policeman when I grow up,” says Stanley.
