Owarwo is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father of ten children, eight girls and two boys all married and small-scale farmers. He had been surviving on small-scale farming to earn a living for both commercial and domestic sustenance but had stopped cultivation due to his condition. His wife helps him farm too.
Since 6 months ago, Owarwo has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him pain and discomfort Fortunately, on March 10th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $139 to fund Owarwo’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Owarwo says, “I expect to get better after my surgery and continue with cultivation.”
