Godfrey is a 9-year-old student in grade 3 at a public primary school. He is the third born in a family of six siblings. Among them are four sisters and one brother. His eldest two siblings had to drop from school due to a lack of school fees, but his other younger siblings are in lower primary grades.
Godfrey’s mother sells ripe bananas on the street while his father is a stone mansion. Through their daily combined efforts, they are able to support their family. The family lives in a rented single room timber house.
Godfrey has a right hydrocele. The hydrocele is causing him progressive swelling resulting in pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on November 11th, he will undergo repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $733 to fund Godfrey’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Godfrey’s father says, “I have really struggled with my son’s condition and I cannot afford his treatment cost.’’
