Nelison is a 40-year-old mechanic from Uganda. He is a father of three daughters and his children are still in school. This is important to him as he was not able to proceed far in school himself as his parents were not able to pay school fees for him. He however later completed a certificate course in mechanics and that has been his source of income. His wife desires to start a business but currently is at home caring for their family.
Since three years ago, Nelison has had a ganglionic cyst on his right wrist. This has hindered his ability to use twist his hand with ease yet his type of work requires him to make multiple twists while repairing vehicles and driving. He had never sought out treatment but when the swell became severe in recent months, he came to Nyakibale Hospital.
On April 5th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Nelison needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Nelison says “I hope to get well after surgery and continue with driving and in good health so I can provide for my family.”
