Austine is a curious one-year-old boy from Uganda. He is the first child born to his parents, Scovia and Ronald. Austine’s father, Ronald, works as a cook at a lodge. His mother, Scovia, stays at home to take care of him. Austine just started walking and is learning how to kick a ball.
Austine was born with a hernia in a sensitive area, leaving his testicles undescended. On April 4, Austine will undergo surgery at Bwindi Community Hospital, our medical partner’s care center, to correct his hernia. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is asking for $179 to cover the cost of his treatment.
Scovia looks forward to taking Austine to school when he is older. She is also grateful to all the donors for their help. She says, “Thank you to all the donors for supporting us.”
