Paul has funded healthcare for 2 patients in 1 country.
Byaruhanga is a farmer from Uganda. He is married and a father of one child. For two years, Byaruhanga has had an inguinal hernia. This causes him pain and is affecting his work on his farm. Fortunately, on February 13, 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 Byaruhanga's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. He says, “After surgery I will resume with my work.”
Katushabe is a high school teacher from Uganda. She is married with two children. Katushabe has had a swelling on her right wrist joint for three years. She experiences pain and discomfort as the mass increases in size. Katushabe traveled to our medical partner's care center to receive treatment. On January 8, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Katushabe needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure. Katushabe says, “I look forward to getting good health after surgery.”
