U Aung is a 70-year-old man who lives with his wife, three sons, two daughters-in-law and his daughter. T

U Aung was diagnosed with diabetes ten years ago. Last year in May, his right heel became swollen and later developed into an ulcer. When the ulcer would not heal, he came to the hospital for treatment. The doctor told him that he would need to receive surgery.

Currently, U Aung feels tired and he has no appetite. He also has a fever. Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo a wound debridement surgery on April 2. He needs help raising $694 to fund this procedure.

Kyomukama

Kyomukama is a 51-year-old woman from Uganda. Kyomukama is a mother of seven and is a small-scale farmer while her husband is a primary school teacher. Their firstborn is now 31 years old and is married already. All their other six children are in school and the cost of their school fees is a major challenge for the family. Kyomukama started having backaches about five years ago. She visited different clinics and could only get tablets to relieve her pain. This pain has persisted over time and has now spread to her legs, abdomen and joints. She came to Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Rushoroza Hospital to seek medical advice. At Rushoroza, she presented with chronic pelvic pain and scan results show she has intra-uterine fibroids. If not treated, pain could stop her from doing her day to day survival activities and her quality of life will continue to be be affected negatively. Kyomukama can no longer do heavy work and has no peace at all due to her pains; her production in agriculture has been reduced. During her free time, she likes making handcrafts but has now started making them full time since she can’t go to the fields to practice farming. She is seeking financial support for the surgery. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $228 to fund Kyomukama's surgery. On October 7th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Kyomukama will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain and her quality of life will improve. Kyomukama says, “My family cannot afford the surgery charges and I am in a lot of pain. I will resume farming as soon as possible once given treatment.”
