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.”
