This lovely little boy is one-year old David who is in need of surgery to correct an umbilical hernia. It is a condition that causes him great discomfort and doctors are keen to operate before any complications can set in. If hernias become strangulated they can quickly turn into an emergency situation but many children, like David, live too far away to get the medical care they need in time. David’s mother is a young mum who is bringing him up on her own after David’s father left the family. We’re hoping that we can raise all the money for David’s surgery to make his life easier but also to help his mum avoid getting into debt and poverty.
