Muzoora is a young student from Uganda. He is the third child in a family of five children. All are studying in both primary and nursery school classes. Muzoora’s father is a builder by profession but since he works in the village, he rarely gets sites for construction; he last got work six months ago. His mother is a small-scale farmer and she at times works in other people’s farms whenever a need for money comes in.
Three years ago, Muzoora developed an inguinal hernia. Muzoora always complains of pain whenever he coughs or laughs, when he stretches as he is playing with others, and he has ongoing abdominal discomfort. Fortunately, on May 21st, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Muzoora’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Muzoora’s father says: “I will be grateful once my child is free from this pain because it worries us as his parents.”
