Daniel is a 1-year-old boy and the last born in a family of three. His siblings are in school. Daniel’s parents are farmers with limited income to provide for the basic needs for him and his family.

Since birth, Daniel has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The swelling has been progressive since birth and is painful to touch. Daniel was taken to different hospitals but they were asked for an amount that his parents could not afford. They were referred to Nyakibale and on review, surgery was recommended. Daniel’s parents appeal for help to see their son treated. Fortunately, on October 12th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $146 to fund Daniel’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Daniel’s mother says “I pray that my son gets treated and lives a better life like any other child. This will help me finally have good peace of mind.”

Joy

Joy is the first born child in her family. She is two weeks old. Their young family is feeling privileged and happy to welcome their firstborn baby, however, they are saddened by the fact that their baby needs medical care for her foot. Her condition has caused Joy’s parents a lot of worry about their daughter’s future. Joy’s mother is a housewife who completed secondary school and never was able to proceed to college due to a lack of funds. Joy's father just completed college and hasn’t been employed yet. The family doesn’t have a house of their own and still lives with their parents. When Joy was six days old, she was brought to the hospital by her mother with concerns of umbilical code sepsis. She was admitted to receive IV antibiotics and general medical management. While receiving medication in the ward, she developed wounds on her leg due to several attempts of cannulation. Over time her condition worsened and her wounds became septic. After several efforts to clean her wounds, it was noticed that her foot was not healing. After a long consultation with the medical team, the possibility of amputation was suggested to avoid further affecting her entire leg. Joy is in need and her family's inability to pay for the surgery has made them live with constant anxiety and worry about her future. Their family is appealing for financial assistance. Joy’s mother says, “I feel sorry about my child. It is painful for her to undergo this while she is just a few days old. Despite this, I will work hard to make her happy as she grows up."
