Mugisha is a 36-year-old preacher from Uganda. He is married with two children, both in preschool. He and his wife practice small-scale farming.
Mugisha presented at the hospital with a left submandibular mass that he has had for five years. It’s progressively increasing in size and has resulted in disfigurement around his neck region which sometimes affects his breathing, swallowing, and speaking. This has also affected his vocation as a preacher in a Pentecostal church.
Mugisha traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 11th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Mugisha needs help to raise $196 to fund this procedure.
Mugisha says: “I will be very glad when I am relieved of this and I look like any other person. I will be able to continue with my preaching and farming after my recovery.”
