Owakubariho is an 18-year-old student and the sixth born in a family of seven children. All of his other siblings are still in school studying and in different grades. His father is a builder, while his mother is a small scale farmer.
For two years, Owakubariho has had a hydrocele, or swelling in a sensitive area. At first, the swelling wasn’t painful, but over the last six months he has experienced pain when urinating and even while he is walking. Fortunately, on April 1st, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $146 to fund Owakubariho’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Owakubariho shared, “I hope that my surgery goes on successfully. I will be healthy once again and continue with my education without any problems.”
