Aimukama is a 4-year-old child and the youngest in his family with seven siblings. Both of Aimukama’s parents are farmers who sell the surplus of their harvest to support the family.
Two years ago, Aimukama developed a neck swelling that has gradually been growing in size and has become painful. The area is sensitive when pressed and limits his ability to sleep well. His mother brought him to Nyakibale Hospital, where scan imaging indicated that he had a thyroglossal cyst. Doctors recommended that Aimukama undergo surgery, but his family cannot afford the cost of his care. His parents appeal for financial support so that their son can be treated and be free from pain and further complications.
Aimukama traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On March 2nd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Aimukama needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Aimukama’s mother shared, “I only pray to God to help me and open a way to your support so that my child may receive his surgery and continue growing up well.”
