about Atuhaire's recovery.

March 7, 2019

Atuhaire is a student from Uganda. He is the sixth of eight children.

For six months, Atuhaire has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The hydrocele causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on March 13, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Atuhaire’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

He says, “I like playing football.”
