Tinkasimire is a farmer from Uganda. He is a father of four children.

For three years, Tinkasimire has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This causes him discomfort and pain. Fortunately, on April 10, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
