Joseph is 15-year-old student and the oldest in a small family of two kids. Joseph is a shy and reserved teenager. He was born with hypospadias, a congenital abnormality that causes urinary dysfunction. Joseph’s mother worries that this condition has caused Joseph to have low self-esteem. Joseph has been examined and scheduled for a corrective surgery at our partner facility Bethany Kids Kijabe Hospital on March 31st.
Joseph’s parents separated last year and his father does not offer financial support. Jospeh’s mother picks up jobs doing laundry or selling food to make ends meet. Joseph’s family does not have medical insurance to afford the necessary surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Joseph and his family raise $847 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
Joseph says, “For a long time, I have been praying and wishing my parents to get money so that I can be treated.”
