Sebazungu is a 20-year-old young man and a student at his secondary school. His best subject is biology. He has seven siblings, four boys and three girls, who are all in school. His parents struggle to pay for the education of their children.
One year ago, Sebazungu developed a painful swelling in his right inguinal (groin) region. His parents took him to hospital where he was diagnosed with a right inguinal scrotal hernia, a condition where part of his intestine is protruding through his inner groin area. Surgery was advised, but his parents couldn’t afford to pay for his treatment. The pain has intensified in the past two months. Sebazungu is now unable to lift heavy items. He also cannot sit and concentrate in class and sometimes he misses school.
$249 will cover the costs of the surgery and care Sebazungu needs. After surgery, he hopes to go back to school and attend classes on a regular basis.
