Sebone is an intelligent and sociable 12 year old boy, living in Ethiopia. Since leaving school some years ago due to his health condition, Sebone has worked as a shepherd. He has a brother and a sister, and he and his siblings have grown up with his paternal grandmother, who is a farmer.

Sebone has been living with a bilateral inguinal hernia, since birth. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort, especially when he is bending over or lifting something. In order to correct his condition, Sebone needs surgery, which his grandmother cannot afford to pay for.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, will be able to help Sebone and his family. On November 1st, Sebone will undergo hernia repair surgery at BethanyKids Myungsung Christian Medical Centre, which should enable him to live a more comfortable life, and to return to school. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is seeking your help to fund this procedure, which will cost $591.

Sebone’s uncle shared: “After the treatment, I believe he will get better and go to school. I hope he will be educated and become a social servant like you.”
