Byarugaba is an elderly gentleman and father of nine children, with three daughters and six sons. Together with his wife, they cultivate bananas and coffee, which earns them a living.

For several years, Byarugaba has had severe pain from a hydrocele, or a swelling in a sensitive area. The pain becomes severe when he tries to do strenuous activities such as digging, walking, or standing for a long period of time. At Nyakibale Hospital, doctors conducted a scan and diagnosed him with a right scrotal hydrocele. Byarugaba needs a hydrocelectomy to correct his condition and reduce the chances of further complications and pain. He appeals for financial support for his cost of care.

Fortunately, on March 2nd, Byarugaba will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $146 to fund Byarugaba’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Byarugaba shared, “I look forward to being treated and continuing with my farm work without pain.”
