Turyamusiima underwent hernia surgery.

Turyamusiima had a successful herniorrhaphy to treat his right ilioscrotal hernia. He has no pain and discomfort and the medical team expects him to recover well from the operation. He is eager to continue with his studies now since he can walk and lift things, unlike before.

Turyamusiima’s mother said with a smile, “I will live to remember you, my donors, for saving my son’s surgery. As parents, we could not be able to make it. I hope that as he recovers fully and he resumes school after opening them since he actually likes studying more than anything.”

Turyamusiima is a 16-year-old senior high student from Uganda. He is the second born in a family of three children and all his sisters are also still studying, the first one is in an institute while the last is in fourth grade. He enjoys playing football during his free time but now cannot endure the pain his condition causes him whenever he is playing. Both his parents are small-scale farmers who struggle to educate their children from the little money they earn from farming.

Since seven years ago, Turyamusiima has had an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on September 7th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Turyamusiima’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Turyamusiima shared: “I hope to get well after my surgery because this condition has given me a hard time. I will continue with my studies and maybe even enjoy football as I used to before.”
