One-year-old Alosious recently took his first steps and he loves exploring the world around him. Alosious has a severe inguinal hernia - where part of the intestine has pushed through his abdominal wall. It is a large hernia and protrudes quite far preventing him from being as active as he wants to be. Hernia’s can result in life threatening complications - they can become incarcerated or strangulated - conditions that require emergency surgery. If complications were to set in it would be unlikely that Alosious would be able to reach medical care in time which could prove fatal. Alosious’s father has abandoned the family and his mother has no money to pay for the surgery. All donations will cover the cost of the surgery as well as his post operative care to ensure he makes a full recovery.
