Abdulwaheb is a cute seven-year-old who loves to play and laugh with his friends. His parents are not currently working because they can’t find employment.

Abdulwaheb was born with a congenital anomaly called bladder extrophy. This means his bladder is exposed above the skin. This leads to urinary abnormality and exposes him to infections. His parents are very worried about the condition.

Fortunately, the family visited our medical partner’s care center. There, he will undergo a corrective surgery on February 20. His family needs to raise $1,500 to pay for this surgery.

His father says, “Our area is not economically stable. It is very hard for us to get work. We have been in different hospitals but we couldn’t get the necessary treatment anywhere. We are here by the help of another organization with a hope to get the treatment, though we can’t afford the medical bill.”

Agnes

Meet Agnes, a hardworking 39-year-old farmer and strong single mother. Two of her children live with her brother in a rural area of the country, while her other children live with Agnes in a house in a small shopping center. Agnes works hard to sustain her family. She does laundry in her neighborhood during the day, while selling vegetables in the evening. During the planting, weeding and harvesting seasons, Agnes goes to the village and works on people's farms. Sometimes she is paid with money, and sometimes she is given food in return for her work. Nine months ago, she was pricked by a maize stalk on her lower left limb. She was walking with difficulty because of the pain that resulted from the wound, and she ended up falling. Agnes traveled to a local facility because of pain and swelling in her leg, and was provided with pain medication and bandages. However, Agnes was referred on to another hospital, where her leg could be X-rayed. The X-ray revealed that Agnes had sustained a fracture in her lower leg. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, can help. On September 1st, Agnes will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation, at AIC Kapsowar Hospital. After this procedure, Agnes will be able to walk without pain and swelling, enabling her to return to her daily activities, and the work that she needs to do in order to earn an income. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is seeking $941 to fund her procedure and medical care. Agnes says: "My family depends on me in everything. With my condition, I cannot work and am afraid that my children will suffer. Kindly help me get through my treatment and be able to provide for them.”
