Kerren'S STORY

Twitter Facebook

10-year-old Kerren has an inguinal hernia, a lump caused by fatty tissue or a part of the bowel, such as the intestine, poking through into the groin at the top of the inner thigh. Kerren has had the hernia for a long time and the swelling is quite significant and causing her discomfort on her long walk too and from school. Kerren lives far from any medical facilities and her family would be unable to afford to reach them as well as pay for any treatment if complications were to set in.

Inguinal hernias never go away without treatment. Left untreated the hernia can become trapped or incarcerated which are life-threatening complications that need emergency surgery. As many of the children we see with hernia’s live far from any medical facilities it is unlikely they would reach medical care in time if complications were to set in.

Hernia surgery is simple and straightforward and ranked as one of the most cost effective health interventions in the low income countries.
