George is a 60-year-old bus conductor who manages coaches along the Rukungiri-Kampala highway in Southwestern Uganda. He is married with three children. George was a grade three teacher before joining the transport business in hopes of better pay; however, he shared that his income is still insufficient to meet his family’s needs.
George has had swelling behind his left knee for the past four years. The swelling has been growing over time and is causing him piercing pain and paralysis. Due to limited finances, he has not sought treatment before, but when his symptoms became severe, he visited our medical partner’s care center for review. After examination, George was diagnosed with a bakers cyst on his left leg. He needs to undergo mass removal surgery on May 26th to finally heal. George is raising $137 to fund this procedure.
George shared, “I hope my leg will get fine. If I get support to undergo surgery, I will continue with work in good health.”
