Ainembabazi underwent a mass removal.

Ainembabazi had a successful mass excision surgery and her mother already reports notable improvement. Ainembabazi’s mother is hopeful that she will now be able to sleep more comfortably and play with others without difficulty.

Ainembabazi’s mother shared, “I single-handedly could not afford the surgery and therefore thank the Watsi program and Rushoroza hospital for making my daughter’s surgery a success. May you live to help many other needy people all over the world.”

Ainembabazi is a two-year-old girl and is youngest in her family of three children. Her mother is a small-scale farmer while her father is a bicycle mechanic. Her older siblings are 9 and 5 years old. Their family rents a single room for shelter and have to work hard to earn enough for their day-to-day needs.

In November 2020, Ainembabazi developed a fever and her mother noticed she had a swelling on her stomach which she thought could be the cause of the fever. She bought medicine to rub on the swell hoping that the it would recede but it did not. Ainembabazi’s mom shared that her daughter cries most of the time and has recently started growing thinner, which she associates with the swelling. Ainembabazi has always been a playful girl but has recently stopped being active. She was brought to our Medical Partner’s Care Center Rushoroza Hospital for medical advice. Doctors have determined that she has a cyst and if not treated, pains could persist and would in the long-run stop her from doing her day-to-day activities. Unfortunately, her parents are not able to afford the cost of surgery and appeal for help.

On March 16th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Ainembabazi’s family needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.

Ainembabazi’s mother says, “I pray that my daughter may get well through surgery as I look forward to taking her to school.”

James

James is former motorbike taxi driver from Kenya. He's married and is the father of two children 13 and 6 years old. James' wife is works part-time on a rice farm in their hometown. The family currently lives in a rental house paid for by their local church pastor. In November 2017, James was in a motorbike accident. Due to the accident, he lost his job, and he shared that his life became one revolving around experiencing pain and constant hospital visits. He underwent surgery on his broken leg in a nearby health facility in his hometown. Following the procedure he had a challenging recovery due to infections, causing him sleepless nights and visits to different healthcare facilities. James was finally referred to our medical partner's care center Kijabe Hospital where he underwent several treatments in May. James returned home but later came back to the hospital with a wounded leg that was in bad shape with an exposed bone. The doctors originally admitted James for repair surgery, but determined he needed a below-knee amputation which took place in mid-June. James still experiences a lot of pain, so the surgeon recommend he undergo another round of intense debridement in the amputated area to remove his damaged tissue and help him to finally heal. James has national health insurance, which supported his two major surgeries, but his coverage has been depleted and will not support the care he needs now. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping James receive treatment. On June 25th, surgeons will perform a debridement and skin graft procedure to prevent the spread of infection and speed up his recovery. Now, James needs help to fund this $1,185 procedure. James wishes to be free from pain, “I, unfortunately, lost my leg due to a sudden amputation, and I am still in shock. I will never be able to use both legs again. I am still in a lot of pain and the wound needs another procedure for me to be well. I need to get out of the hospital and figure out how to take care of my family with my current condition.”
