Turyatunga is a 22-year-old university student. He’s in the second year of his studies, where he is pursuing a degree in arts and social sciences. In addition to school, Turyatunga is passionate about sports, especially football.
Turyatunga is the only boy in a family of four kids. His siblings are also all in school. Coffee farming is the major source of income for his parents, but yields have been low due to a severe drought in the country.
When Turyatunga was in Form 6, he noticed a painful swelling and mass in his chest that caused him difficulty sleeping. He visited a doctor who after tests and review has recommended that he needs surgery for treatment.
Our medical partner African Mission Healthcare is requesting $188 to fund this procedure and help him heal.
Smiling brightly, Turyatunga says, “I dream of the day I will wake up to find that am free from this pain, I hope the treatment will restore my good health so that I may continue with my studies.”
