A month back Bukya Basha was brought into the hospital complaining of unbearable pain in his stomach and incessant vomiting. Upon diagnosis, Basha learnt that he had developed gallbladder stones which have damaged his pancreas causing Acute Pancreatitis.
Basha is the son of two daily wage labourers. Being the oldest of his siblings, from a young age Basha decided to make a better life for himself and his family. His hard work put him through college and landed him work as a manager at a construction site. He was finally able to take care of his parents, send his younger brother to college and make arrangements for his sister’s wedding.
