Katurebe is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father to two children–two girls who are married and are now small-scale farmers. He practices farming together with his elderly wife and they stay together in their small semi-permanent house. Sometimes when they can’t meet their basic needs like salt and soap, he works on other people’s farms to earn a living.
Since three years ago, Katurebe has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him pain and prevents him from working. Fortunately, on March 17th, 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 Katurebe’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Katurebe says, “I hope I will get better after my surgery is done.”
