Kabatereine is a 66-year-old father of twelve children. After painfully losing his first two wives, he currently lives with his third wife and several of his children, trading goats to support his family.
Four years ago, Kabatereine developed a painless mass on his back. Though he had originally hoped that the lump will shrink on its own, it did not and has recently started to cause pain and discomfort. Due to worries of the increasing abnormal growth of the tissue mass, he visited Rushoroza Hospital, which is a care center of our medical partner, African Mission Health (AMH). Doctors recommended a mass excision, which will occur on June 10th at Rushoroza Hospital. AMH is requesting $145 to fund this procedure for Kabatereine’s treatment.
Kabatereine says, “I pray for a successful surgery. I will resume my usual business of buying and selling goats to be able to support my family.”
