Alvin is a lovely little boy coming up to his second birthday. Alvin has hydrocele - a sac of fluid that forms around the testicles. The hydrocele itself isn’t painful but the large swelling is causing Alvin discomfort when he walks and runs around. Surgeons have said that an operation is his only option. The operation is straightforward and simple but his parents, although desperate for their son to get the medical care he needs, cannot afford the cost of surgery. We’re hoping we can raise the money needed to cover the bill so Alvin gets the operation he needs without his family having to get into debt and further poverty.
