Ampereza underwent a hydrocele surgery.

Ampereza underwent a hydrocelectomy treatment and is already feeling much better. He shared his excitement that he can now walk well and no longer feels needles and pins, which he did before.

Ampereza’s mother said: “I thank you so much for having saved my child’s health because he being a young growing boy, we were worried that this may cause him infertility in the future.”

Ampereza is a 14-year-old student from Uganda. He’s in the sixth grade and he is the fourth born in a family of five children. All of his siblings are still studying in primary and secondary school too. Ampereza’s father is a primary school teacher, but lost his job last year due to the pandemic. His mother is a small scale farmer who normally grows food crops for home consumption and sells off any extra to support the family.

For the last three years, Ampereza has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The hydrocele causes him weakness and pain, and he cannot sit for long. Fortunately, on January 26th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $146 to fund Ampereza’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live and grow up more comfortably and confidently.

Ampereza’s mother shared, “I am really looking forward towards seeing my son having a better life after surgery so that he continues with his education once schools are reopened.”
