Baguma is a small businessman from Uganda. He is a married father to two children, both studying in preschool. He studied and completed school to senior four but never proceed due to lack of school fee. He first worked as a construction site porter for three years until he got some capital to start up a small retail shop from which he currently earns a living from. His wife is a small scale farmer and he shared that he normally grows food crops for home consumption only because the land she cultivates is rented since they have no land of their own as a family. His family lives in a double roomed rental house where they use the front side as the business premises and the back one for accommodation.
Baguma arrived at the hospital with a back swelling that he has had for three years now. He consistently has pain when the lifts anything heavy.
Fortunately, Baguma traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On September 8th, surgeons will remove his mass. Now, Baguma needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Baguma shared: “I will be relieved from the long-standing pain I have had over the years and continue keeping my shop to sustain my family after I have fully recovered.”
