Arinda is a 20-month-old baby from Uganda and the only child to his parents. His mother is a roadside trader who sells onions, tomatoes, and fresh beans. His father is a bicycle mechanic and they live together in a single-roomed rental house deep in the village.
Since birth, Arinda has had an inguinal scrotal hernia. Arinda is in pain and if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on September 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Arinda’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently as he grows up.
Arinda’s mother says, “I hope that by surgery my child will get well to have proper growth like all the others.”
