We received a quality service and I am thankful for all who made this possible. I am praying and wishing all the process goes well with the court and his parents and I made my boy officially my child.”

Eyohas is three-year-old from Ethiopia. He is a sweet and loving boy who likes to play football and play with cars. His guardian Lishan is his mom’s aunt and she is the one who is raising Eyohas. Lishan has one child of her own and she also adopted and raises a girl who is her niece. Her husband is a driver and the breadwinner for their family. His income is all goes directly to meeting their basic needs. Together they live in a rented house with one room.

Lishan discovered about Eyohas’s condition a year ago but they could not get him the necessary treatment due to financial constraints. Eyohas has an inguinal hernia, which results from a weakness in the abdominal wall.

Fortunately, on March 15th, Eyohas will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $512 to fund Eyohas’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently as he grows.

Lishan shared, “I hope with this surgery, he will heal and he will go to school. In the future I believe he will be a successful adult. I wish him to have a good life in the future.”

Son

Son is a 21-year-old mother of two. She and her husband have two sons - one is four years old and the other is one year old. Both she and her husband are construction workers. When not working outside on construction sites, she is a busy mother caring and cooking for her active children. Four months ago, on the way home from work, Son was in a motor vehicle collision. She injured her left shoulder and received a hard blow to the face, fracturing her left orbital bones. Her family took her to a government hospital to repair the bones surrounding her eye. The traumatic injury also damaged the muscle and nerve function of her shoulder, which was not repaired. This is a devastating injury for their young family, as it can cause a significant loss of function and ability to perform tasks of daily living. Son has been diagnosed with a brachial plexus injury on her left side. The brachial plexus is a nerve network that transmits signals from the spine to the shoulder, arm, and hand. Injuries to this nerve network can result in loss of function and sensation. She has pain and is unable to lift her left arm. She cannot work in construction or manage her household, which has also been very hard for her husband. Son traveled to our medical partner's care center to receive treatment. This is the only center in the whole country where this treatment is available. On October 17th, she will undergo a brachial plexus repair surgery. After recovery, she hopes that her arm will be functional and she can work, do housework, and care for her children. Our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, is requesting $709 to fund this procedure. She says: "After surgery, I hope I can use my left arm. This treatment will help me in the future to return to work."
