Tayebwa did not yet undergo hydrocele treatment.

Our medical partner shared an update that Tayebwa’s hydrocele started to heal on it’s own so he was given medications and will continue to come for follow-up appointments. His doctors want to make sure that a surgery is not required and have postponed his case. He expressed his gratitude for the willingness of the Watsi community to support his surgery and is glad that someone else can now be supported.

Tayebwa is a 24-year-old man and a father to one child. He and his wife are peasant farmers and they live in a single rental house with their one-year-old child.

For two years, Tayebwa has had a hydrocele, or a swelling in a sensitive area. He experiences pain that has worsened over the last six months along with other uncomfortable symptoms. He also experiences discomfort when walking or working on the farm. He is worried that without treatment, his condition could cause infertility.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Tayebwa receive treatment. On June 9th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $146 to fund Tayebwa’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Tayebwa shared, “with a successful surgery, I hope to recover well and continue with farming and caring for my young family.”
