about Bagazonzya's recovery.

January 31, 2021

Bagazonzya is a 74-year-old small scale farmer. He has two children with his current wife and has twelve other children from past marriages. Some of his children are now married and self-employed, while others are still in primary and secondary school. He and his wife are small scale farmers.

For the last four years, Bagazonzya has had a hydrocele, or a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him weakness and pain and prevents him from working. Bagazonzya and his wife are unable to afford the treatment he needs to improve his quality of life.

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

Bagazonzya shared, “I have spent much time with this condition and it has reduced my work performance. I dream of the day I will be relieved of this condition so that I can get better again. I will resume farming after I have a successful surgery.”
