Riebert is a 7-year-old boy who lives with his family in the Philippines. He was born with an inguinal hernia (when part of an organ protrudes through an abnormal opening or in an abnormal way, this is called a hernia. A groin (inguinal) hernia occurs when part of the intestine bulges through a weak spot in the abdominal wall at the inguinal canal. The inguinal canal is a passageway through the abdominal wall near the groin).
His hernia is becoming larger and more uncomfortable for him. His father lost his job and his mother does laundry to earn money for their family. So the cost of the surgery he needs is out of their reach.
Due to the location of his hernia, we cannot share photos of it. But we can tell you it is very large in size.
He needs surgery to improve his quality of life. Can you please help us take away Rieberts pain and discomfort?
