about Ndyamuba's recovery.

October 19, 2020

Ndyamuba is an elderly man who is a farmer from western Uganda. He cultivates maize, beans and cassava for his family of six. He also has a small plantation of coffee and bananas.

For about two years, Ndyamub has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area, and it has recently become quite painful. After doing strenuous activities, such as cultivation or standing for a length of time, he starts to feel uncomfortable.

Ndyamuba had not been to a hospital before he went to Nyakibale Hospital for a scan. After reviewing his scan, the surgeon recommended a hydrocelectomy surgery to help correct his condition. The surgery will reduce the likelihood that Ndyamuba experiences further pain. Without treatment, he will not be able to continue working.

However, this procedure is costly for Ndyamuba and his family. Due to his older age, he is no longer able to cultivate his crops as much as before. His children also have limited income and are not able to support his medical fees. Ndyamuba is appealing for financial support.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $146 to fund Ndyamuba’s surgery. On October 20th, he will undergo a hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Ndyamuba shared, “The only hope I have of recovering from this condition is undergoing surgery. I hope to have a new life and resume farming after I have fully recovered.”
