Owakubariho underwent hydrocele repair surgery.

Owakubariho successfully received a hydrocelectomy treatment after having been diagnosed with bilateral hydrocele. He is now free from pain and other uncomfortable symptoms he had experienced. Owakubariho hopes to lead a more comfortable life with full recovery.

Owakubariho looks forward to what his future holds: “I am sure that after I have fully recovered, I will be able to play well since football is my best hobby. Thanks so much for having made my surgery possible. I will be able to continue with studying once my school reopens.”

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.”
