Rukuya is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. For five years, Rukuya has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. Fortunately, on December 5, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Rukuya’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
