Celab is a trader from Uganda who came to our facility with complaints of back swelling that has gradually become painful. For the past nine years, he has felt painful pricks on his back. He is not able to lift heavy loads on his back. Celab has tried traditional medications but been unsuccessful.
Celab was diagnosed with lipoma and an excision is recommended for better health and quality of life. Celab is a father of five children who are students. He trades in bananas while his wife is a peasant farmer. Due to the school fees requirement, his income is often insufficient. He requires the surgery to excise the lipoma and continue providing for his children.
Celab traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On January 7th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Celab needs help to raise $187 to fund this procedure.
Celab says, “I pray that I get well after surgery so that I can continue hustling for my family.”
