Ramita is a two-year-old girl who has been unable to say her first words. Ramita was born with ankyloglossia, often called “tongue-tie,” a congenital anomaly that can affect speech, feeding, and oral hygiene.

Because of her condition, Ramita cannot speak, feels discomfort in her tongue, and has trouble eating. Her mother is very worried about her only child’s speech development, but the cost of surgery is out of reach for Ramita’s parents. Her mother does agricultural work and her father works in India to support the family.

With your help, Ramita can receive the $965 surgery she needs to live a healthier life and let her voice be heard!

Ainembabazi

Ainembabazi is just 5 years old and currently in preschool. His father noted that he could not feel his son's right testis and initially, they ignored it because the boy was young but as time went on, Ainembabazi started complaining of pain. In September, Ainembabazi complained of being swollen after coming home from school. His parents thought it would heal on its own however in March, the swelling became prominent and they decided to go to the regional hospital in their area of Uganda. They got several appointments from the doctors but they were constantly postponed over and over again due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. After postponing three times, their family decided to come to Rushoroza Hospital. Doctors there said if he is not treated through a herniorrhaphy, he risks intestinal obstruction, strangulation, and gangrenous. Ainembabazi's mother is a small-scale farmer who grows beans and sorghum for home consumption. She is happily married to his father who is a primary teacher and who does all he can to provide for the family despite his low salary. They own a three-room semi-permanent house on their ancestral land. Ainembabazi is the fourth born in their family of five children. Ainembabazi’s mother says, “My son is active in class despite the prevailing challenges. We have a lot of hope in him. After the surgery, he may be able to comfortably carry on his studies to the highest level we possibly can take him, no doubt about that. May God make everything possible.”
