about Seng Hout's recovery.

May 19, 2021

Seng Hout is a 44-year-old farmer who has been married for 15 years and has one son and one daughter. Seng Hout shared that his son is 10 years old and in 5th grade, and his daughter just turned one year old. When Seng Hout is not farming, he also works in construction building houses. In his free time, he enjoys listening to the radio and drinking with his friends.

On April 18th, Seng Hout fell hard from a mango tree and fractured his right ankle. He takes pain medication to ease the symptoms but he still experiences pain and stiffness in the area. It is difficult for him to walk and work normally.

When Seng Hout learned about our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, he traveled for six hours from his province seeking treatment. On May 19th, surgeons at Children’s Surgical Centre will perform an ankle fusion procedure to relocate and secure the joint. Now, Seng Hout needs help to fund this $518 procedure.

Seng Hout shared, “I hope I can walk without pain and return to my work as soon as possible.”

Komugisha

Komugisha is a small business woman from Uganda. She is a 41-year-old mother of three children, and she lives with them in a single-room rental house. After separation from her husband, Komugisha assumed the role as the sole breadwinner of her family. To earn a living, she trades in dry cereals to pay for the fees and expenses for her children, but faces difficulty when farming harvests are not productive. Six years ago, Komugisha began to experience troubling symptoms, including anterior neck swelling, difficulty breathing, and persistent pain. She was diagnosed with nodular goitre, or an enlarged thyroid gland. Initially, she had visited a different facility which gave her an oral medication, but her condition did not improve. Komugisha was also advised to undergo surgery, but she opted to use local herbs as medicine due to the costs. In the end, Komugisha was referred by a friend to our medical partner's care center, Nyakibale Hospital, where she had a scan diagnosing the goitre, and doctors suggest surgery to prevent worsening symptoms. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), is helping Komugisha receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on June 22nd at our medical partner's care center, where surgeons will remove all or part of her thyroid gland. This procedure will cost $252. Komugisha shared, “I can no longer walk for longer distances yet my job requires much walking to look for the cereals. My children are still in need of daily upkeep. Please help me."

Dora

Dora is a teenager studying in class six and her best subjects are English and Swahili. Once she completes her studies, Dora has dreams to become a teacher. At home, she is the seventh oldest of her mother's eleven children. Dora's father has three wives, so Dora has twenty siblings total. Dora likes helping her mother with home chores, such as washing dishes and keeping their home clean. Dora's parents are small scale farmers of maize and vegetable, and they also have a few cattle that they depend on for milk. Dora was diagnosed with left genu valgus, a condition typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, her left leg is bowed so that her knees touch, thus making walking difficult. Dora has to walk forty minutes one way to and from school everyday, so this condition poses a significant barrier to Dora continuing her education and pursuing her aspirations. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $880 to fund corrective surgery for Dora. The procedure is scheduled to take place on July 15th. Treatment will hopefully restore Dora's mobility, allow her to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease her risk of future complications. Dora shares her current condition, "When I walk to school my leg pains so much there are days I am unable to put weight on the leg especially when it’s cold. Please help me."
