Zefrino is a 65-year-old gentleman from Uganda. He is a married man with two children, both of whom are married and self-employed. His wife engages in small-scale farming for their survival, while Zefrino works as a security guard at a hotel, earning a modest salary to take care of his family.
For the past year, Zefrino has lived with a painful swelling in his neck. He can no longer wear a suit coat, and he shared that the disfigurement caused by the swelling has made him a laughingstock in his community. He struggles to continue working as a security guard, and his quality of life has diminished significantly. Without treatment, the swelling will continue to grow and to become more painful.
Because of financial constraints, Zefrino has been limited to visiting local health centers, where he has been provided with pain relievers as his only treatment. When he learned about our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, he sought their help.
On November 14th, surgeons at Karoli Lwanga Hospital, Nyakibale will remove the mass. Now Zefrino needs your help to raise $137 to fund this procedure.
Zefrino said: “I appeal to donors to support my surgery so that I can resume my work as a security guard and support my family.”
