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.”

Su

Su is 10-year-old girl who lives in Thailand. Both of her parents work for a community based organization helping others in their area. In her free time, Su likes to draw pictures and play with her friends. Su was born with clubfeet and a dislocated hip. She received corrective surgery in Chiang Mai with the help of our medical partner BCMF after she was born. During her last visit to the hospital when she was young, the doctor told her mother that they only had to return to the hospital when she outgrew her clubfeet correction shoes. However, her parents could never bring her back. In additional to financial constraints, their legal documents expired, and later when they had legal documents, they could not go to Chiang Mai due to covid-19 travel restrictions. In June 2022, Su started to experience pain in her right foot whenever she walked more than 10 minutes. She also experienced pain in her right hip for the first time when she walked. The doctor at Mae Sot Hospital diagnosed her with a dislocated hip and referred her to the larger hospital Chiang Mai for further treatment. In October an MRI was performed for Su and it was determined that she may need two surgeries: one for hrt hip and another for her clubfeet condition. The first surgery is for a hip replacement and the doctor scheduled her for surgery on November 25th so she can be out of pain as quickly as possible. Her family needs $1500 for her hip replacement surgery. Su's father said, "I am hopeful for my daughter to receive surgery soon. After surgery, I hope that she will be able to walk like other children and she will not be shy when she grows up. Now, when she goes to school, some of her friends tease her that she cannot walk properly like other children."
