A mother finds help for her baby son

Kassim and his family live on the edge of the vast Serengeti plains. When he was about two months old his mother noticed him holding his pelvic area and crying, then she saw a swelling.

A visit to the doctor quickly diagnosed a hernia, but the family had no money for the operation that would repair it.

Their doctor told his mother to call us at The Plaster House, where help might be available. And it was.

His mother came to Arusha with Kassim and stayed at with him at The Plaster House while his treatment was completed. His hernia has now been repaired thanks to a generous program sponsored by US-based African Mission Healthcare.

Kassim recovered from his hernia surgery at The Plaster House and has now returned to his Serengeti home with his mother.
