Aaron joined Watsi on February 1st, 2019. 12 other people also joined Watsi on that day! Aaron's most recent donation supported Asaba, a young man from Uganda, to fund hernia repair surgery.
Aaron has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 2 countries.
Asaba is a mechanic from Uganda. He is the second in a family of six children, with his four younger siblings still in school. For one year, Asaba has had an epigastric hernia. This hernia causes him discomfort and pain. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on December 12, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $249 to fund Asaba's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. He says, "After surgery I will be happy and resume with my work.”
Nahashion is a boy from Kenya. He is the third child in a family of four. His parents farm potatoes and have a limited income. Nahashion experienced a painful accident while he was playing with his friends three days ago. He traveled four hours to visit our medical partner's care center, where he was diagnosed with a fracture. Now, he is in a lot of pain. Fortunately, Nahashion is set to undergo fracture repair surgery on January 25. The procedure will cost $763. His mother says, "I hope he will receive treatment and recover fast."
