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.

Karungi

Karungi is a local primary school teacher and a mother of three daughters, with her eldest daughter being a university student. Karungi's husband operates a bodaboda business (bike and motorcycle taxis), but with the current lockdown in Uganda, the business has been negative impacted. Therefore, their family has limited income to support their children's education, daily upkeep, and hospital costs. For about 20 years, Karungi has been experiencing lower abdominal pains, backaches, bleeding, and weight loss. She had been to different hospitals and were treated for a urinary tract infection. She tried managing the pain with medication but as the discomfort failed to subside, Karungi sought treatment at our medical partner's care center, Nyakibale Hospital. She was diagnosed with multiple uterine myomas. Karungi had a scan done and surgery was recommended to prevent her condition from becoming malignant. Karungi needs to undergo is a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMH), is requesting $219 to fund Karungi's surgery. On July 13th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Karungi will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Karungi shares her worries, “Since we are on lockdown, we are not earning thus getting money for treatment is hard. I hope to be supported, treated and resume my usual duties with little pain and less worry."
