Tangishack's Operation

Uganda, African Boy in need of an operation to repair his feet

Tangishack is a 4-year old boy born with a condition known as “club feet”. Visiting his Village of Buguuku, our mission team went door-to-door letting villagers know of the gospel crusade and medical mission being held in the center of their small village. Upon hearing we were supplying medical care, Tangishack’s mother went into her house and brought out little Tangishack. She asked me to help her son. I explained that we did not have the equipment, facility or personnel for that type of surgery her son would need. She then begged me to help. I explained that I would talk to the director Patrick Ssenyenjo of Raising Up Hope for Uganda (RUHU) about her plight since all of our efforts go through this small relief organization. I explained to Patrick that I would be willing to raise money for the operation and rehabilitation if he could get Tangishack to an Orthopedic Surgeon. We are taking Tangishack along with his mother to the hospital this Monday, February 5th for a consultation. One orthopedic clinic provided an estimate of $1800.00 for the procedure after seeing pictures. I don’t know if this will be enough so I’m hoping to raise at least twice that amount. No money will go to waste as Patrick visits the slums in the capital city of Uganda twice a week and many of these children are in need of medical care. I’ve visited the slums and have seen first hand the overwhelming need and the love and care Patrick and his volunteers provide.
