Lifesaving medical intervention



It is with great sadness that we share that John from Kenya recently passed away due to related complications before the preliminary tests for the kidney transplant began. We are grateful to our supporters who generously provided the funds needed for John’s future procedure, ensuring he had access to timely treatment as he bravely faced his kidney condition. Your generosity ensured John received access to quality treatment and weekly dialysis as he awaited a transplant. Please pray for John’s family and community as they grieve his loss. Read the full update here.

You can still give to this gift in John’s memory. Any excess funding received will be used toward the treatment of other medical conditions for children in need.

Lifesaving kidney transplant*

*The following is the original gift description

Ten-year-old John from Kenya suffers from a rare renal disease that causes a loss of kidney function. Today, John’s kidneys have lost 90 per cent of their functionality. With your gift, you can ensure John gets the kidney transplant and pre- and post-surgery care he needs to save his life, so he can go back to being a kid.
