Turyasingura is a 7-year-old child from Uganda. He is the forth born in a family of four siblings and all are still in school, except the youngest. Turyasingura studies at Kahoko Primary School and is currently in primary class one. His mother says had it not been his condition, he would have currently been in primary two but because of his condition, he missed promotional examinations last year because of the pain he had. His mother earns a living through practicing small-scale farming while his father works as a carpenter.
Since his birth, Turyasingura has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on April 7th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Turyasingura’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Turasingura’s mother says: “I hope that my boy will be fine after his surgery.”
