Mwesiga is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father to six children, three boys and three girls all married and self-employed as small-scale farmers. He earns a living through practicing small-scale farming and so does his wife.
Since three years ago, Mwesiga has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him lower abdominal pain and this is affecting his ability to work on his farm. Fortunately, on March 10th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Mwesiga’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Mwesiga says, “I hope to get well after my surgery so as to regain my strength and continue with cultivation.”
