Isaac is a bright 18-year-old student from Uganda and the fourth child in his family of seven. He stays with his guardian, who is currently helping with his school fees. Isaac’s parents are small-scale farmers and unable to afford the cost of his surgery needs.
About seven months ago, Isaac developed a small, painless swelling on his forehead that he hoped would disappear with time. However, the mass has been increasing in size, and Isaac is concerned about future complications. Fortunately, he traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On May 10th, surgeons will remove the mass. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $145 to fund this procedure.
Isaac said: “I pray for a successful surgery. I want to look normal again. I will continue with education after recovery for a bright future.”
