Tusingwire is an active two-year-old and the second born in his family. He likes riding small bicycles and running around with his friends. His mother is a housewife while his father is a secondary school teacher who recently enrolled for further studies to help advance his career in the future. They live in a three room house that they are working to fully build.
Since about three months ago, Tusingwire has had an inguinal hernia. He experiences pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on June 3rd, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $170 to fund Tusingwire’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to grow up more comfortably and confidently.
Tusingwire’s mother says, “My son is not well and is in pain; my husband and I cannot afford the surgery currently. I pray that he may be considered for treatment so that he may once again live a normal and pain-free life.”
