Tayebwa is a child from Uganda. He is in fifth grade and has two siblings. Tayebwa’s father is a welder, and his mother is a tailor.
Since birth, Tayebwa has had a painful swelling on his neck. It has continued to increase in size. The swelling causes him discomfort and prevents him from swallowing normally.
Tayebwa traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On July 26, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Tayebwa’s family needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Tayebwa’s father says, “I hope my son to be relieved of this condition as he has stayed with it for long and be free from the discomfort and disfigurement. I will also continue with welding for the support of my family.”
