July 5, 2017

Mwesigwa is a six-year-old boy who lives with his parents and two siblings in Uganda.

About one month ago, Mwesigwa began experiencing pain and swelling in his scrotum. His condition has caused him to miss school and feel embarrassed around his peers.

Worried about her son, Mwesigwa’s mother sought treatment through our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. Mwesigwa’s swelling was diagnosed as a hydrocele, and he is now scheduled to undergo hydrocele repair surgery on July 6 to alleviate his pain and discomfort.

Mwesigwa’s family is requesting $139 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Mwesigwa’s mother says, “I hope to have peace of mind because my child has been suffering with this.”
