Elnatan underwent an orchidopexy procedure.

Elnatan’s surgery was successful! He and his mother returned home with a full recovery. This treatment will prevent the chance of infertility, testicular torsion, and other related diseases like an inguinal hernia.

Elnatan’s mom said: “I am so happy. I will educate my boy well. I want him to be independent and support others.”

Elnatan is a 1-year-old boy from Uganda. He is very playful and loves to play with car toys. Elnatan is an only child. His mom makes traditional coffee for a living, and she is the main breadwinner and caretaker for the family. His dad is an assistant mechanic, but, as his mom shared, he does not contribute as much to the family due to his problems with alcoholism.

Elnatan was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Elnatan has an increased risk of developing hernias, testicular cancer, and fertility problems in the future.

Elnatan will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo a corrective surgery called an orchidopexy on January 21st. AMHF is requesting $754 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.

Elnatan’s mother shared, “I believe he will heal and go to school and become a clever student. I hope he will lead his own organization and become financially successful one day.”

Shallon

Shallon is a farmer from Uganda. She completed primary school class six and then had to leave school. Together with her husband, they have 6 children, including a set of twins. They live in a two-roomed mud-built house. Their firstborn child is 14 years old while the last borns are in junior class and aged 5 years. Shallon and her husband work hard to meet all the daily needs of their family. During her free time, she enjoys tending to her family and spending time with her children. Shallon is currently expecting twins. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a Caesarean section because she has a twin pregnancy, and one of the twins is lying transversely, or sideways. Shallon received a full antenatal package at a local health centre and when she drew closer to the expected day of delivery, she came to Rushoroza Hospital. She was reviewed and surgery was recommended. An attempt to deliver normally could rupture Shallon's uterus. She is not able to meet the cost of surgery and is appealing for help. By delivering her babies via C-section, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and children. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Shallon undergo a C-Section on August 18th. This procedure will cost $207, and Shallon requests your support. Shallon says, “I pray for a successful surgery. I will resume farming alongside my husband as soon as I get well to be able to continue supporting and taking good care of my family.”
