Karamagi is a 70-year-old man from Uganda. He is married and a father of ten children.

For two weeks, Karamagi has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. This hydrocele causes him discomfort and has affected his work. Fortunately, on October 17, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $185 to fund Karamagi’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

He says, “After surgery I will be happy and resume with my work.”
