Ampureire underwent mass excision surgery.

Ampureire successfully underwent a mass excision surgery to remove the cyst on her neck. She is already feeling well and went home excited. Her grandmother is hopeful that she will be able to play comfortably with her friends and will resume school once it reopens.

Ampureire’s grandmother expresses her appreciation, “I thank the Watsi program for assisting us and making my granddaughter’s surgery a success. I believe she will finally live a normal life again and will have a bright future.”

Ampureire is a seven-year-old student from Uganda. She lives with her mother, three siblings and grandmother. Her grandmother is a farmer and supports the family while Ampureire’s mother nurses one of her young children.

Ampureire was born with a small neck opening. The opening healed on its own, but later, she developed a swelling in the same spot. The swelling has increased and Ampureire experiences pain from time to time. She was diagnosed with a branchial cyst. If not treated, the swelling will persist and affect her quality of life.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Ampureire to receive treatment. She traveled to AMH’s care center where, on June 2nd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Ampureire needs help to raise $145 to fund the procedure.

Ampureire’s grandmother shared, “I pray that my granddaughter may get well through surgery as I look forward to taking her to school.”
