Tindibakira is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is married with five children. He has had a swelling on his head for five years. He experiences pain and discomfort. Tindibakira traveled to our medical partner's care center to receive treatment. On July 2, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Tindibakira needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure. Tindibakira says, “I hope to be well after surgery and I continue with farming to take care of my family.”
Sarom is a 59-year-old tuk tuk driver from Cambodia. He has three sons, three grandchildren, and enjoys Khmer movies and taking care of his grandchildren in his free time. Four months ago, Sarom developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him tearing, photophobia, and blurry vision. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside. When Sarom learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, he traveled for half an hour seeking treatment. On July 2, doctors will perform a phacoemulsification cataract surgery and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure. He says, "I hope that after my surgery, I can return to my work as a tuk tuk driver and help to take care of my grandchildren."
Baitamu is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. For four years, Baitamu has been experiencing lower abdominal pain. She has been diagnosed with intramural fibroids. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $208 to fund Baitamu's surgery. On July 9, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Baitamu will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Baitumu says, “I am worried whether my condition will be relived because it has been long standing. I will be thankful after treatment and continue with cultivation.”
