Eman underwent corrective surgery.

We are happy to share that our medical partner reached out to let us know that Eman has completed her multi-stage treatment. She had a successful PSARP on the 2nd of July followed by a colostomy closure on the 19th of September. She is now able to pass stool on her own and will have a higher quality of life ahead.

“I cried the first time she passed stool normally. I am immensely grateful,” says Eman’s mother.

Eman is a baby from Kenya. She was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.

Eman is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on August 2. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,327 to cover the total cost of Eman’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Eman will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

“Thank you for offering to help me,” says Eman’s mother.

Natukunda

Natukunda is a teenager who had to drop out of school after 6th grade due to lack of school fees. His parents separated when he was very young and he has been raised by his grandmother. Having dropped out of school, he decided to find employment in Rukungiri town; first taking care of animal farms and later working in a rice plantation. In January 2019, Natukunda developed a small swelling on his right iliac fossa. The swelling kept on expanding as time went on. He decided to leave everything he was doing in Rukungiri and returned home to his grandmother's house. Due to his persistent pain, Natukunda could no longer work. He did not seek medical attention anywhere due to lack of money, but his uncle found out about his situation and decided to bring him to Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Rushoroza Hospital to seek medical advice. At Rushoroza Hospital, Natukunda presented with a long-standing history of on and off right inguinal scrotal swelling and if not treated through herniorrhaphy, it may get obstructed, strangulated and gangrenous. Natukunda’s father lives in Mitiyana district and works in a tea factory but does not provide support to him. His mother runs a small bar of beers, sodas, and a few other soft drinks in Muhanga, and she tries to support him once in a while. Natukunda says, “I will be able to do any income-generating activity such as being a porter on construction sites, farming, and many others jobs after my treatment. I will be able to take care of myself again.”
