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.”
