Paul is an elderly man from Uganda. When he was young, he was denied the opportunity to go to school by his parents because they wanted him to look after their cows, goats, and other domestic animals. He shared how they did not value education. Paul's mother died when he was still young, and his father remarried. Paul left his father’s house to stay with his brother. Paul married but had no children. His brother with whom he was staying died and now Paul lives alone in a single room. He is looked after by well-wishers. He still practices farming, with difficulty. Some sixty years ago, Paul's neck began to swell. Over the years, a large mass has grown in his neck. The mass has been diagnosed as bilateral multinodular thyroiditis--lumps in his thyroid gland. This large mass is painful and causes airway obstruction especially while sleeping. Because Paul can no longer fend for himself, his friend brought him to Rushoroza Hospital where he was advised he needs surgery to prevent his symptoms from getting worse. He is scheduled to undergo a thyroidectomy on November 10th. Surgeons will remove all or part of his thyroid gland, removing the large mass and allowing Paul to breathe with greater ease. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Paul receive treatment. This procedure will cost $333, and he needs help raising money. Paul says, “I pray for a successful surgery. I will keep practicing farming after I am well to be able to feed myself.”
