Bakwangira is a carpenter from Uganda. He is married and a father of eight children.

For four months, Bakwangira has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele is increasing in size and causing him discomfort. Fortunately, on September 11, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Bakwangira’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

Bakwangira says, “I am looking forward to getting treated. I hope to continue with carpentry.”
