Fred underwent mass excision surgery.

Fred had a successful surgery at Rushoroza Hospital. The swollen mass on his right hand was removed. He is eager to be able to do all his day to day duties comfortably now. Additionally, when Fred returns to school to teach, he hopes to find it easier to write on the chalkboard. Fred is very happy and even promised to spread the good news to people around his village.

Fred says, “I will not get tired of thanking the WATSI program for restoring my health, which had started to interfere with my day to day duties. May God reward you.”

Fred is a 50-year-old teacher from Southwestern Uganda. He teaches at a primary school and lives alone in a semi-permanent house. He also takes care of some of his nieces and nephews and contributes to their school fees.

Five years ago, Fred developed a small, painless cyst on his right wrist. Over the last few years, the cyst has been growing and is becoming more painful, especially when he is writing on the chalkboard. He visited a local hospital and after an exam, a mass excision surgery is recommended to help him heal.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Fred receive treatment. He traveled to AMH’s care center where, on August 23rd, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Fred needs help to raise $145 to fund this procedure.

Fred shared, “currently, I can not afford the cost of surgery yet I desire to be treated and ease off the pain. Please help me.”
