Twijukye is a preschool student from Uganda. He likes playing with other children but his condition and pain makes it difficult for him to play. He is the third born in a family of four children, the two older children are in school while the youngest is still breastfeeding. His parents are small-scale farmers but oftentimes they work on other people’s farms as a casual laborers.
Four years ago, Twijukye developed a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on July 14, 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 Twijukye’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Twijukye’s mother shared, “I pray that my child gets relief from this condition so that he can have a better life and grow up healthy.”
