7-year-old Cyrus told our healthcare volunteers that he loves playing football but he has had to stop as his grandmother, who cares for him, is concerned about him damaging his large hernia. His grandmother hoped the hernia would disappear as they sometimes do in very young children but Cyrus’s hernia hasn’t done this and it seems to have got larger in recent months. His grandmother desperately wants him to have the surgery but she didn’t even have enough money to bring him to the hospital for assessment. Our volunteers bought him in for assessment where surgeons confirmed he needs to be operated on. Every penny you donate will cover the costs of transport to and from the hospital as well as the surgery and post-operative care.
