Atuheire is a 6-year-old student from Uganda and the last born in a family of three children. He lost both parents due to HIV/AIDS and had been brought up along with his sisters by his grandmother. His elderly grandmother is a small-scale farmer and a widow who has managed to bring up the children all by herself through farming.
Since he was born, Atuheire has had umbilical hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on September 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Atuheire’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Atuheire’s grandmother shared hopefully: “I pray for blessing to whoever will stand in to help my grandson to undergo his surgery because I personally can’t do anything now for him. I hope he will regain his normal health and continue studying well.”
