Ngwe underwent a mass removal procedure.

Ngwe feels much better since she received treatment. Before, she would find it difficult to sit up after lying down. But now she can sit up very easily. She is no longer in pain except for a slight discomfort at the site of her surgical wound. Her treatment has helped both her and her family very much. She no longer has to rely on her daughter to support her when she walks.

Ngwe said, “When I return to my village, I will participate in merit-making activities with my friends, such as going to the monastery and meditating. I will help my daughter’s family by looking after my grandchildren and if I have free time, I will make traditional Burmese bamboo mats. I would like to thank everyone who made this treatment possible, especially the donors who paid for this treatment.”

Gideon

Gideon, who was born with intellectual disabilities, lives in and attends a special school in Eldoret town. Gideon likes being in school and he likes drawing during his free time. His parents live in the village and it’s been a long time since Gideon has seen them, so he is looking forward to seeing them when he gets treated. Gideon came to the hospital after having a swelling in a sensitive area for more than two years. He reports that it was gradual on the onset but worsened with time. Gideon was brought to the hospital by one of his relatives after they were told of Gideon's condition. Before they came to Kapsowar Hospital, they had tried many other hospitals, but every time they were asked to pay huge amounts of money for treatment, which they cannot afford. Gideon has an appointment for a hydrocelectomy surgery to repair the double hernia bulges. He has been experiencing severe discomfort in the affected area and a mild headache, and feels ashamed walking around due to the swelling. Currently, Gideon is under the care and support of the Samaritans, but they don’t have money to pay for his surgery, only for room and board. They are asking anyone reading this story to support Gideon so he can undergo a successful surgery for recovery. Gideon is a happy young man who looks forward to seeing his parents soon. His uncle says, “I will be happy to see him without the swelling. He deserves to live a happy and healthy life like others.”
