A project of Mosaic Community Church
We are raising funds to help get surgeries for two young boys and one young adult in Axum, Ethiopia.
Working in partnership with Dr. Rick Hodes (http://rickhodes.org/), Mosaic Global Mission is raising funds to help the following candidates from Axum, Ethiopia to recieve life changing surgeries.
Tesfalem claims to be 15 years old, though he looks no more
than 10. He has severe case of Kyphosis caused by Bone TB (Tuberculosis). He is a full orphan and is currently sponsored by Mosaic's Child Sponsorship Program.
Amir is 13 years old. He has neurofibromatosis, growing plexiform neurofibroma covering his eye, and really bad scoliosis - it is virtually 180 degrees, with the spine like a folded pancake.
Temesgen is 20 years old. He has a Neuro-Enteric Cyst of the cervical spinal cord which results in him having very limited mobility. Temesgen is a canidate to recieve surgery in November 2012 in Addis Ababa.
Tesfalem and Amir will have to be flown to Ghana for their surgeries. There are many expenses involved in getting them to Ghana.
If 1,000 people give $50 USD we can cover all the expenses for the surgeries for these three young men. Will you join us in this journey of hope?
