At 13, Ojok, a resident of Areaga in Laroo Division in Gulu Municipality developed what doctors say is a cardiac complication that gradually grew into scrotal hydrocele.

Ojok’s father, Abwoch a former civil servant told Chimpreports that the family is too poor to help their son afford surgical operation.

He added that because of failure to relieve Ojok from the illness, his son has become a public nuisance and is often insulted and laughed at by neighbors.

“People insult us and his friends laugh at him, so we decided to always keep him inside the house. Because we don’t have money, we have given up on any hope,” said Abwoch.

The medical result established that Ojok has lymphedema of both the legs and thickening of the skin which developed into a groin hydrocele.

Mr Awoch has urged for help from the government or health specialists to rescue his son who has since dropped out of school.

Ojok’s mother, Filder Ayet described his son as a lovely baby who was born a normal child from St Mary’s Hospital Lacor.

“The doctors in Mulago told us it needs seven hours and several doctors to carry the operation,” Ayet said.

However, life has become difficult without a sign of money and hope of working on him.

Ayet believes that her son was a curse from God and wished he could cure him.
