Talemwa is a young student from Uganda. He is the youngest of six children. He is studying hard because he wants to become a teacher in the future.

He says, “I like playing football.”

For three weeks, Talemwa has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on November 7, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Talemwa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
