Ronald is a hard working student. He comes from a family of five, and both his parents are small-scale farmers. They currently live in a rental house with two rooms, and Ronald is the oldest of three children, all of whom are in school. Due to financial constraints, his parents have been unable to seek medical treatment for their son until now. The family is appealing for financial support to help cover the cost of their son’s surgery and improve his overall well-being.
Since April last year, Ronald has had a hydrocele, which is a swelling in a sensitive area. The swelling causes discomfort and disfigurement. The pain makes it difficult for him to walk to school, and once in school, he is unable to play with other children or concentrate in class. If left untreated, he could develop an infected hydrocele, which could lead to future risks. Fortunately, on April 12th, he will undergo hydrocele repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $146 to fund Ronald’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Ronald’s father says, “I will be grateful when my son is treated with your support as he will be able to continue with school.”
