Two-year-old Shamdam has a huge inguinal hernia. An inguinal hernia is some fatty tissue or bowel such as the intestine, poking through the groin at the top of the inner thigh. Shamdam is a very active little boy but as his hernia is large and protrudes significantly it is stopping him from running and playing. Surgery is his only option and surgeons have suggested operating sooner than later to avoid any life-threatening complications setting in. Hernia operations are ranked among the most cost-effective health interventions in developing countries and are typical of the low-cost, high-impact operations we fund. Donations will cover the cost of the actual surgery, medical supplies, the hospital stay and transport to and from the hospital.
