Karahukayo is a motorbike taxi (bodaboda) operator and a father to two children. Both his son and daughter are still in school. He studied and completed senior four but never proceeded due to lack of school fees. He instead stayed at home farming but later found someone to give him a motorbike taxi to ride and be paid on a commission basis to help earn income for his family.
Karahukayo arrived at the hospital with a swelling on his wrist which he has had for the past three years. He feels numbness and paralysis around the site, he can’t lift anything heavy or he stretch his hand for long.
Karahukayo traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On February 2nd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Karahukayo needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Karahukayo says: “I have hopes and believe that once my surgery goes on well, I will be able to have a new life and continue with my bodaboda job.”
