about Aguma's recovery.

March 31, 2019

Aguma is a young student from Uganda. He is the first of three children.

Since birth, Aguma has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on April 17, 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 Aguma’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
