Jaiden is a preschooler who already has big dreams and plans! He is a sharp boy who joined preschool recently. He was brought to Nyakibale Hospital by his grandmother, who is raising him. His father is a cobbler and lives in Kampala. Jaiden’s grandmother wishes him to be an engineer in future. She fears that she might not be able to fund his education because her only source of income is small scale farming. Her grandmother wants to see him healthy, but is not in a position to pay for his medical needs.
Since last year, Jaiden has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The condition causes him itchiness and swollenness in his scrotum. He has difficulties urinating and he experiences pain. After visiting Nyakibale Hospital, he was reviewed by a doctor and treatment was recommended. Fortunately, on September 13th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $146 to fund Jaiden’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Jaiden’s grandmother says “I really wish to see my grandson in good health, am so much worried of is health and yet I have no money to pay for his treatment.”
