Pius is a 10-month-old child, living with his parents and siblings in Uganda. Pius’ parents engage in small-scale farming, primarily for their large family’s consumption.
Three months ago, Pius developed a painful swelling in his right inguinal area. His parents brought him to the hospital, where it was determined that he had a right inguinal hernia, which was causing him a great deal of discomfort, and diminishing his appetite. If left untreated, the hernia could worsen, leading to strangulation. Surgical intervention is needed.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Pius’s hernia repair surgery, which is scheduled for October 25th, at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale. Once he has recovered, Pius should be able to live without pain.
Pius’ mother says: “I will be glad once I see my son happily playing in good moods like before this condition. I don’t have money on my own, thus I am appealing for donor support to improve my son’s quality of life.”
