Edwin is a married man with two children aged five and two. He works on construction sites to provide for his family. His wife is a homemaker, and when he does not get work, he tills his small piece of land, where they mainly get their food. Edwin works hard so that his family may not lack for their basic needs. When he realized he had a hydrocele, he was so worried since he is the sole breadwinner in the family. He has no medical coverage, and now he is appealing for help so that he may be able to live more comfortably.
Edwin, a joyful individual, visited our medical partner’s care facility yesterday after having symptoms for over two weeks. Upon realizing the presence of swelling, he promptly sought assistance at a nearby health center. However, he was subsequently referred to a more comprehensive facility where an ultrasound was performed, leading to a diagnosis of Acquired Hydrocele. Edwin was advised that surgery was the most effective action to avert potential complications. Following his return home, the swelling has continued to increase, prompting him to seek care from our health partner, African Mission Healthcare. During the evaluation, it was determined that surgery was necessary to address his condition. Now, Edwin needs help raising $737 to fund this procedure.
Edwin says, “I am very uncomfortable with my current situation and look forward to getting well. Please help me get treatment.”
