Asasira received successful hydrocele repair surgery.

After full recovery, Asasira will be able to play games at school. He was discharged from the hospital and sent home in good health.

“I feel better,” Asasira shared post-surgery. “I am excited about getting well and resuming running because I miss it. After recovery I am going to concentrate on my studies. I am sure I’ll get well and regain my strength. Thank you very much for helping me”

Asasira’s mother added: “Thank you for the kindness you’ve shown me and my son. I could not raise money for his surgery. God bless you.”

Asasira is 16 years old and from Uganda. He has six siblings: five sisters and one brother, who are all in school.

Asasira developed swellings in his scrotum in 2009. The swellings are painful and the pain worsens when he carries heavy items. He was taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with bilateral hydrocele and was advised to have surgery.

After his father married a second wife, Asasira’s family has struggled, with his mother making little and seasonal income. She does not have the means to pay for the surgery that Asasira needs.

Due to the pain, Asasira has stopped running at school, the activity that he likes most. If not treated, Asasira may suffer intestinal obstruction, incarceration and strangulation.

The hydrocele repair surgery will cost $215, during which the hydrocele sac on his scrotum will be drained.

After surgery he hopes to get well soon so that he can resume running and concentrate in class. He came in 3rd in a class of 40 students, and in the future he wants to be a medical doctor or a journalist.
