Tusiime is an 8-year-old girl and in primary school class two. She is very active and hardworking in class. Her father is a charcoal maker, while her mother is a small scale farmer. They have seven children together and Tusiime is the fifth born. Her parents are having a hard time earning enough to cover the school fees for their children, but are working hard to make ends meet. They live in a three-room semi-permanent house for shelter.
For the last six years, Tusiime has experienced pain and discomfort with a mass on her wrist that is increasing in size.
Tusiime traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 13th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Tusiime needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.
Tusiime’s mother says, “With this surgery, Tusiime will be able to proceed comfortably with education.”
