Morgan underwent gallbladder surgery.

Anguyo underwent a successful Curative Laporatomy and Cholecystetcomy treatments due to cholecystitis, an inflammation of the gallbladder. He can now eat well with less discomfort and pain. He was encouraged to eat soft food to allow good peristaltic movements and we hope that after his recovery he will be able to resume his duties as a prison officer.

Anguyo shared, “I appreciate the good work done to save my life. Had it not been for your support, I would not have been able to afford the surgery and I would have a poor quality of life. Once I recover, will continue serving my nation.”

For about four years, Morgan has had recurrent pain in his abdomen and in February the pain became severe. He sought treatment at Watsi’s Medical Partner Care Center Nyakibale Hospital in Uganda.

Morgan says that due to the recurrent pain, his eating has worsened, he has lost weight, and is his productivity at work is down. He had tried managing the pain with hospital visits, however upon review in Nyakibale Hospital, doctors diagnosed him with cholecystitis and curative laparotomy surgery is recommended. With successful surgery, Morgan will be able to lead a comfortable life with fewer complications. 

Morgan is a prison officer in western Uganda. The father of one laments that currently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, he is not able to access medical help from the prisons medical centre and is in need of care. His wife is a business lady and their income not enough to meet the cost of surgery ($230) and their daily needs.

Morgan shared, “I pray hard that I could be supported to undergo my surgery, get healthy once again, and continue serving my country.”

Karungi

Karungi is a local primary school teacher and a mother of three daughters, with her eldest daughter being a university student. Karungi's husband operates a bodaboda business (bike and motorcycle taxis), but with the current lockdown in Uganda, the business has been negative impacted. Therefore, their family has limited income to support their children's education, daily upkeep, and hospital costs. For about 20 years, Karungi has been experiencing lower abdominal pains, backaches, bleeding, and weight loss. She had been to different hospitals and were treated for a urinary tract infection. She tried managing the pain with medication but as the discomfort failed to subside, Karungi sought treatment at our medical partner's care center, Nyakibale Hospital. She was diagnosed with multiple uterine myomas. Karungi had a scan done and surgery was recommended to prevent her condition from becoming malignant. Karungi needs to undergo is a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Karungi's surgery. On July 13th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Karungi will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Karungi shares her worries, “Since we are on lockdown, we are not earning thus getting money for treatment is hard. I hope to be supported, treated and resume my usual duties with little pain and less worry."
