Irumba is a 61-year-old farmer from Uganda. He is married and has six daughters and four sons. Irumba and his wife are both farmers, cultivating food for home consumption and for sale.
For the past three months, Irumba has been experiencing a swelling of his left scrotum associated with back pain and an inability to stand for a long time. Irumba was previously treated for a left inguinal hernia and right hydrocele. He recovered well from those surgeries and now requires treatment for a left hydrocele. If his condition is not addressed, the swelling may continue to grow, causing pain and discomfort.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund surgery for Irumba. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 28 and, once completed, will hopefully allow Irumba to have peace of mind and live comfortably again.
“After surgery I will continue farming,” says Irumba.
