Henery is doing great and the surgery was a success! He’s currently at home resting with his family. After a fully recovery, he will be able to work again as a mason and support his family as he did before.

“I thank the people that have made this treatment available for me,” shares Henery. “I was treated very well and was also given health education and counseling.”

30-year-old Henery works as a mason and constructs houses in Uganda. It is hard work and has enabled him to support his four children and pay their school fees. Henery and his wife live in a small village. His wife grows food for them family on their small plot of land. When he has leisure time, Henery enjoys listening to the news on the radio with his wife and watching village soccer matches.

Henery has had growths on his back for seven years, but they weren’t causing him much pain so he kept working and took pain killers from his local health center. However, recently they have grown and have become much more painful. Henery was afraid they would prevent him from working and supporting his family. Doctors have examined them and recommended surgical removal. Henery’s income is not enough to cover this surgery.

$196 will cover the costs of the surgery and care Henery needs to remove his masses.

Henery shared, “I would like to give thanks to all the donors for supporting me and helping me get better.”
