Kato is a student from Uganda. He is the first of three children in his family.

For four months, Kato has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him swelling and discomfort. Fortunately, on January 22, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Kato’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

His mother says, “After surgery my son will have peace and resume with education.”
