about Deus's recovery.

June 8, 2022

Deus is a 62-year-old farmer who was widowed many years ago and worked hard to raise her seven children on her own.

For four years now, Deus has been experiencing significant lower abdominal pain and other troubling symptoms. She is very worried about her condition, which limits her daily activities, and makes it difficult for her to pursue her farming.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is here to help Deus access the care that she needs. The doctors at Karoli Lwanga Hospital in Nyakibale, diagnosed Deus with a uterine prolapse. On June 9th, Deus will undergo a hysterectomy to resolve her condition, and to enable her to return to an active life without pain. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is requesting $243 to fund her procedure.

Deus says: “After a long while with this condition, I look forward to the restoration of my health with your support. Hopefully, I will resume my work on recovery.”

Victor

Victor is a sweet and quiet three-year-old boy from Kenya. He is the secondborn in a family of three children. Victor's mother was recently diagnosed with arthritis and can no longer keep her previous job doing laundry for people. She is currently looking for another job. Victor's father makes and sells mandazi, a form of fried bread, by the roadside to help support their family. When Victor was two weeks old, his mother noticed that both testes were undescended. She took him to the hospital, where he was examined and diagnosed with bilateral undescended testes. He was referred to another facility in Nairobi for treatment. On arrival, he was examined and booked for a clinic. Victor attended clinics for a few weeks. Fortunately, all worked out well for him. In one of the clinic reviews, the testes were found to have descended, and his parents stopped going to the clinics.  However, when he was two years old, his mother noticed that one testis was not detectable. After seeking medical attention, Victor was diagnosed with cryptorchidism, a condition in which one or both of the testicles remains undescended. If left untreated, Victor has an increased risk of developing testicular cancer and fertility problems in the future. Due to his condition, he is also at risk for hernias. At his appointment, it was found that he has already developed a right inguinal hernia. Fortunately, he is scheduled to undergo surgery to rectify both of the conditions. Victor will be receiving assistance from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). He is scheduled to undergo corrective surgery on July 25th. AMHF is requesting $646 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care. Victor’s mother says, “I feel bad that I cannot raise the required amount of money to cater for my son’s treatment.”
