Bruno is a 10-year-old student in the fourth grade. He is the firstborn in his family. His parents are farmers with a modest income to meet most of their day to day needs. Bruno’s father shared that he is a kind and cheerful boy.
Since he was born, Bruno has had a hydrocele, or swelling. However, 6 months ago, the hydrocele became painful. The hydrocele manifests itself as a swelling in a sensitive area. His parents have tried seeking treatment earlier without success. Now, Bruno is not able to play around actively like other children. HIs family took him to Rushoroza Hospital and doctors have told them that he needs a hydrocelectomy surgery. Their family appeals for help to fund his care.
Fortunately, on November 19th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $170 to fund Bruno’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Bruno’s father says, “My son is no longer active like he used to be and I am worried. I hope he may get well through surgery so that he can return to school and proceed with his education comfortably.”
