March 2, 2020

Nuwamanya is a 33-year-old farmer from Uganda. He is a married father with two children in school and the youngest is still a baby who breastfeeds. Both of his parents are small scale farmers as is Nuwamanya and his wife. They mostly grow cassava, potatoes, and beans, making a limited income.

Since two years ago, Nuwamanya has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. Hydrocele causes him weakness and pain and prevents him from working. Fortunately, on March 5th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Nuwamanya’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Nuwamanya says, “I hope my surgery will go on well so that I can continue with cultivation.”
