Owomugisha underwent mass removal surgery on his chest.

Owomugisha had a mass excision surgery to treat a cyst on his chest. The surgery was successful and he is already feeling a lot better. Owomugisha is now able to sleep comfortably and is happy he’ll be able to do his day to day duties without difficulty. He’s back home now and doing well!

Owomugisha’s mother says, “I thank the WATSI program for making my son’s surgery a success with financial support. We had no way out and we are happy. My son will continue with education as soon as possible.”

Owomugisha is a 13-year-old student and the oldest child in a family of three siblings. His parents are small scale farmers and his family lives together in a single rented room.

In March, Owomugisha developed a small mass in his chest area, which has been gradually increasing in size. He was initially given medication, but the mass is not receding. If it is not treated, he will continue to be uncomfortable in school, and could experience poorer quality of life.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Owomugisha receive treatment. He traveled to AMH’s care center where, on June 2nd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Owomugisha needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.

Owomugisha’s mother shared, “I pray that my son may get well through surgery. I want him to be able to comfortably proceed with his education.”
