about Anania's recovery.

June 11, 2017

Anania is a 66-year-old subsistence farmer from rural Uganda. He grows foods such as bananas, beans, cassava, millet, potatoes, coffee, and tea in order to support his family. During his free time, Anania enjoys visiting friends and relatives, feeding his chickens, and attending church. He feels great joy when watching his grandchildren play around the compound after school.

For about four years, Anania has had a painful scrotal mass that that has made it difficult for him to work and complete daily activities. He initially tried pain relief drugs and medicinal herbs to help his condition, however his symptoms only intensified over time.

In addition to the $7 that Anania has subsidized, our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $196 to fund Anania’s mass excision surgery. The treatment is scheduled to take place on June 13 and, once completed, will hopefully allow Anania to return to the activities that he loves. After his treatment, Anania looks forward to resuming his farming and is hoping to save some money to buy more chickens and keep them for eggs.

“I thank the donors for supporting my treatment,” shares Anania. “I suffered for many years because I could not afford it.”
