Ryan underwent an adenotonsillectomy so he can grow up healthy and pain-free.

Ryan had successful treatment and is recovering well from surgery. By the sencond day, he was fit for discharge home and will come back for the clinic checkup. His mother and grandmother were very pleased and appreciated the sponsorship. Ryan is now free from complications, can sleep comfortably, and even go to school.

Ryan’s family says, “After almost one year we can now relax. Looking at my grandson, I can only imagine him having quiet sleep and easier breathing. We really appreciate the help given and pray for God’s blessings to you,” said Ryan’s grandmother.

Ryan is a handsome three-year-old boy and his mother’s only child. He and his mother are supported by his grandmother, who works washing clothes for neighbors.

In mid-2021, Ryan was frequently contracting common colds, and experienced difficulty sleeping and swelling of the tonsils. He visited many hospitals, and finally an ENT clinic where a doctor recommended that he undergo an adenotonsillectomy, or a procedure in which surgeons will remove his adenoids and tonsils. If left untreated, Ryan will continue to experience uncomfortable symptoms and will be at risk of complications like nasal obstruction, infection, difficulty swallowing or even heart problems.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Ryan receive treatment. On April 8th, he will undergo an adenotonsillectomy. After treatment, his symptoms will subside, his quality of life will improve, and he will be able to join school with no challenges. Now, he and his family need help raising $565 to fund his procedure and care.

Ryan’s grandmother shared, “we have seen our child suffer for a long time. We have tried all we could and our boy continues to suffer. We kindly seek sponsorship so that our boy can be happy and be ready to start school.”
