Kene underwent corrective surgery.

In the theater, the doctor noticed that Kene had an undescended testis and decided to perform an orchidopexy instead of an hydrocelectomy. Kene’s surgery was a success. He is no longer at risk of continued pain and discomfort.

His aunt says, “Kene is now much better. He is able to sleep well at night. He has not cried at night since surgery. After his recovery I will have peace of mind and enough rest at night. Kene will grow with good health without anything disturbing him. I am very grateful and appreciative to Watsi. May God grant you peace.”

Kene is a two-year-old boy from Uganda, and is an only child.

In February of 2017, Kene started developing a swelling in his right scrotum, which grew and became painful over time. His aunt took him to a local clinic where the swelling was diagnosed as a hydrocele, and surgery was recommended to alleviate Kene’s pain.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Kene’s surgery to correct his condition, which is scheduled for July 5.

“After surgery Kene will no longer cry at night, and will grow with good health,” Kene’s aunt says.
