Kananura is a 73-year-old man. He lost his wife last year and since then, his closest family has been his five children and his grandchildren. He is a farmer with a coffee and banana plantation. He also rears cows and enjoys milking them. However, the farm output is only able to sustain his day to day needs.
Since some months ago, Kananura has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The swell started off small but has over time increased and is very uncomfortable. He is not able to milk his cows with ease nor walk freely. He came to Nyakibale Hospital, where he was diagnosed. Kananura needs surgery but is not able to raise the funds needed and so appeals for help. Fortunately, on September 22nd, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $146 to fund Kananura’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Kananura says, “I hope to get relieved from pain after surgery. I will continue taking care of my family and enjoy company with my grandchildren who I live with.”
