Naris is a hardworking father from Uganda. He has five children, ranging in age from 17 to 30. To support their family, he works as a small-scale farmer, and his wife works as a dry fish vendor in Kabale central market. They own a three-room permanent house for shelter.
Over ten years ago, Naris was throwing bricks while working in construction when he suddenly felt pain on the right brachial side of his arm. The pain fortunately was mild and later disappeared. However, Naris developed a small swelling in the same location where he had experienced the pain. This mass eventually began increasing in size and has become painful. This has caused Naris to experience discomfort while farming. If not treated, the mass is likely to affect functionality of his upper right limb.
Fortunately, Naris traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 9th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Naris needs help raising $145 to fund this procedure.
Naris says, “I believe that I will get well through surgery so that I may be able to continue with farming comfortably for further development of my family.”
