Tumuhise is a trader from Uganda. He is single and his mother is a small-scale farmer while his father is a wood cutter. He was born in a family of four siblings whereby he is the oldest and the rest are still in school. He dropped out of school due to lack of school fees and is now selling items to earn a living. He operates a small-scale retail shop.
Since eight years ago, Tumuhise has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in his sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him discomfort and he cannot lift and carry heavy load, which is part of his job. Fortunately, on January 14th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Tumuhise’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Tumuhise says, “I will be humbled seeing my condition improved after surgery.”
