Jack is a 74-year-old farmer. He lives in Uganda with his wife, Esther, and their children. He enjoys listening to the news on the radio and socializing.
For five years, Jack has had an enlarged prostate. This condition is painful and makes doing daily chores difficult. He has managed his pain with painkillers.
Jack visited our medical partner’s hospital, Bwindi Community Hospital, where doctors advised him to have his prostate removed. He is scheduled to undergo a prostatectomy surgery on January 9.
Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $314 to fund this surgery. After surgery, Jack will return to his family, free of pain, and continue cultivating coffee, maize, beans, and potatoes.
“I would like to encourage Watsi to keeping welcoming people with hospitality and thank them for their help with my surgery,” says Jack.
