Byaruhanga underwent hydrocele repair surgery.

Byaruhaga’s hydrocele repair was a success. He is no longer at risk of discomfort and pain. After recovery he will feel comfortable and he will be able to do any work.

He says, “I feel better. I am anxious about getting well again. After recovery I will be able to work with my sister in our gardens and get more food for the family. I pray for all the people who have paid for my surgery. May the good Lord bless you.”

Byaruhanga is a 30-year-old man from Uganda. For many years, Byaruhanga has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. It doesn’t hurt, but it makes him feel uncomfortable when he walks. Fortunately, on December 13, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Byaruhanga’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

Byaruhanga sister says, “My brother has suffered with this condition for so many years and we are unable to pay for his surgery. He needs help.”
