Kusemererwa underwent hydrocele surgery.

Kusemererwa’s hydrocele repair was a success and he is no longer at risk of complications.

Kusemererwa’s father said, “My son is now fine. He can get out of bed eat and walk around. I extend my sincere appreciation to all those who contributed towards my child’s treatment. Thank you so much for the great work done in my son’s life. I have nothing to give you in return. May the living God reward you. After recovery Kusemererwa will be going to school daily without anything disturbing him.’’

Kusemererwa is a student from Uganda. He is the second of four children.

Since birth, Kusemererwa has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The swelling causes him discomfort. Fortunately, on April 10, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Kusemererwa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

He says, “I like playing football.”

Ma Ni

Ma Ni is a 30-year-old woman from Burma. In her free time, she likes to pray to Buddha. She and her husband work as government officers. Together they earn 414,000 kyat (approx. $414 USD) per month, which is not enough for any safety net after they pay their bills for utilities and other household expenses. One day in July 2019, Ma Ni stood up from her desk at work and had pain in her hip joints. She had to push her hand against her hips to help her walk. She did not think there was anything seriously wrong so she did not seek medical attention. However, two weeks after this incident, when she was going to work, she slipped and fell in front of her house. Right away her hips started to hurt and two weeks later, the pain gradually became severe. Her condition worsened day by day, although she visited several hospitals and had taken medications. Currently, Ma Ni has a lot of pain in her hips. She cannot walk for more than two minutes or the pain becomes unbearable. She does not feel comfortable when she lays down and has problems sleeping from the pain. She also needs help going to the bathroom and taking a shower. Fortunately, Ma Ni learned about Watsi's medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF). At BCMF's care center, surgeons can perform a total hip replacement to relieve Ma Ni of her pain and allow her to walk easily. Treatment is scheduled for December 17th, and Ma Ni needs help raising $1,500 to pay for this procedure. Ma Ni said, "I had to send my son to my mother’s place in Mawlamyine and my husband also had to ask for leave. [When fully recovered] I want to take back my son from my mother and send him to school. I will support him in whatever he wants to become when he grows up.”
