Vicent is a peasant farmer from Uganda. Vicent has been having a scrotal swell for the past one year which gives him a lot of discomforts. He has not been able to attend the hospital previously due to lack of money. He came to our facility through a referral and was diagnosed with a hydrocele. Fortunately, on November 12, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Upon successful treatment, Vicent will have reduced chances of complications from the swell. However, he does not have the money required for the surgery. Vicent is a peasant farmer together with his wife. He has overtime lost 8 of her 10 children, leaving him with psychological torture. Vicent’s income is too little to afford the cost of care. He appeals for financial assistance.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Vicent’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Vicent says, “Am expecting to have a changed life after surgery and continue with cultivation.”
