Abel is elderly man who is married with nine children. His children are teachers and small business people and are all married, but unfortunately are not in a position to help fund their father's surgery. Abel and his wife are farmers and through hard work manage to raise enough income for their daily needs.
Since 5 years ago, Abel has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. He experiences swelling with intermittent pain and discomfort. Abel struggles to walk or even work on the farm. He has undergone one hydrocelectomy surgery, but after a year, it appeared again. Abel was reviewed at our medical partner's care center Nyakibale Hospital and surgery was recommended. He appeals for financial support.
Fortunately, on October 12th, Abel will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $146 to fund Abel's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will enable him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Abel says “I have had this problem for a long time and I really request your help over this burden. I would have had this treatment done but I don’t have the money.”
