Karubanga is a farmer from Uganda. He is married and a father of 14 children.

For six months, Karubanga has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The swelling causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on January 16, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Karubanga’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

He says, “I like being with others during my free time.’’
