Naboth underwent hernia repair.

Naboth’s surgery was successful! His doctors performed a herniorrhaphy to repair his inguinal hernia. He reports only some pain at the incision site. He can now move well and after making a full recovery expects to have a better quality of life. He will also be able to go back to working at his retail shop and providing for his wife and child.

Naboth shared, “This can never be taken for granted. I have never seen such an amazing opportunity and offer like this. May God reward you. I am so glad for the support for my surgery. I will now be able to continue operating my retail shop.”

Naboth is a 32-year-old retail shop attendant from Kenya. His wife helps him out in the shop and they both have one child. He came to Nyakibale Hospital with a painful swell on his right scrotum that has been there since birth. He struggles with the pain especially when he has to do strenuous activities or when he stands for long. He had been to the hospital previously, but due to limited finances, he could not receive care.

He requires surgery which would help reduce complications such as strangulation. Naboth’s business is not big and the limited resources available cannot pay for the cost of surgery. He appeals for financial assistance.

Fortunately, on April 25th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Naboth’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Naboth says, “I shall be well since am in your hands of support and I hope to continue with my business of operating a retail shop to earn a living.”

Babikyengyire

Babikyengyire is the mother of one child who is 7 years old and in first grade at primary school. Her husband died in an accident in 2012. She later managed to buy a piece of land and constructed a three-room semi-permanent house for shelter. A long time ago, in 1989, she thought she was gaining weight with an expanded neck because it was painless. She got married in 2009 and when she got pregnant in 2012, she developed neck pains especially after walking long distances. After delivery, the swelling increased as well as her pain. She is a member of the church choir, but she could no longer sing because it was too painful. Currently, she feels much pain when she wears a mask due to the ongoing COVID-19 regulations in the country. She is hopeful to find a solution from Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Rushoroza Hospital. At Rushoroza, she presented with long-standing history of bi-nodular neck swelling. Thyrotoxicosis, airway obstruction, difficulty in breathing could be the end result if not treated through a thyroidectomy. Babikyengyire is a businesswoman who carries clothes around town to her customers, though she shared that she is finding it challenging now due to her condition. She feels uncomfortable being in public because of her neck swelling. She seeks financial support for her surgery because her small business can hardly raise a fraction of the total surgery charges. Babikyengyire shared, “I hope for a successful surgery. After the surgery, I believe that I will be able to travel long distances that will help me reach out to more customers and improve my business.”
