Victor is an active 8-year-old boy from Kenya. In 2019, Victor’s mother took him to be treated for anorectal malformation birth condition and discovered that Victor has undescended testes. Victor’s father works as a taxi driver, and his mother is not able to work as she has to take care of Victor and his siblings, one of whom is disabled.
Victor has been diagnoses with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Victor has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.
He is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on March 30th with assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF).
Victor’s mother shared, “I was worried about the delay in getting help for Victor but I am relieved to know that my son will finally get the help that he needs.”
