This is Francis, the most humble and capable kid I have had the privilege of meeting in my lifetime. Witnessing his inspiring attitude and lasting energy, you would never know the severity of his medical problem.
Francis is between the ages of 10 and 13. We are unsure due to the loose record keeping in his country: Ghana. Within the last 5 years, Francis has been rapidly losing his vision due to a degenerative eye condition. It has progressed to the point where he now only has the ability to use his peripheral vision, which is diminishing as well.
Due to Francis's condition, he is unable to attend school. He is more than capable of doing the work, however the Ghanian education system does not have the capability of catering to his needs at this point. Education is a crucial aspect of every childhood, which Francis is missing out on. With treatment, Francis will be able to begin his education again, which to him would be an invaluable gift.
Our goal is to be able to raise enough funds to bring Francis to America and get him the proper treatment he so desperately needs and undoubtedly deserves. This is an urgent and time sensitive case so we need your help!
Medaase! (Thank You!)
