about Kabatereine's recovery.

June 9, 2021

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.”

Susan

Susan is a seven-year-old girl in the first grade and the second child in her family. Unfortunately, Susan was involved in a grisly road traffic accident when a vehicle lost control on March 8th, 2021. Five children and the teachers were hit, and one child unfortunately passed away. Susan survived despite sustaining fractures on her right hand and leg. She was brought to our medical partner's care center, Nazareth Hospital, and had a fracture repair surgery on her hand and leg. One week ago the plates were removed. Susan's hand has healed well but she has started having severe pain on her leg. When Susan's parents brought her back to the hospital, a X-Ray showed the fracture has reoccurred, and the surgeon recommended a repeat surgery. Without treatment, Susan will continue experiencing the pain, she may never be able to use her leg again, or her leg may eventually heal with a deformity. Fortunately, the surgeons at Nazareth can help. On July 1st, Susan is scheduled to undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Afterward, Susan will freed from pain and will be able to use her leg to walk to school and play again. Susan’s father works temporarily as a welder and her mother is a housewife. Their income is limited and their health insurance can no longer cover for another surgery after supporting the previous one. Therefore, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $1,049 to fund this procedure for Susan. “We thank God that our child is alive as one child died during the accident. We are hoping her surgery can be successful so that we can see her happy again and not in pain. We plead for her surgery sponsorship, ” Susan’s father wishes for her daughter's full recovery.
