Charles, who is 62 years old, is a chatty and sociable farmer living in Uganda. Together, he and his wife have two sons and three daughters. Both Charles and his wife practice small-scale farming, which generates a small income they rely on.
For two years, Charles has lived with a swelling on his left leg, which has been increasing in size over time. He limps while walking, and he is worried about the continued growth of the mass.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is here to help. On February 7th, surgeons at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale will remove the mass. Charles needs help raising the $137 to fund this procedure.
Charles says: “I hope I can walk well again once I am operated on. I think with your support, all will be possible.”
