Richard is a retiree from Uganda. He is a father of three children, with his last born child currently attending school. To help feed his family, he raises pigs, chickens, and two cows. His wife operates a small retail shop near their home.
For the past six months, Richard has had a swelling on his right cheek near his ear, which he says has been increasing in size quickly. The mass is painful and makes it difficult to turn his neck to the right comfortably. Although doctors recommended that he undergo surgery, he is unable to fund the procedure due to financial constraints.
Richard traveled to our medical partner’s care center to receive treatment. On August 16th, surgeons will remove the mass. Now, Richard needs help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Richard says, “Basically, after being given your support, all I wish for is a successful surgery, and I am sure I will get well after surgery.”
