Lira have launched a fundraising campaign to raise sh45m for an emergency heart operation to save a one-year old baby diagnosed with heart complication.
Seth Twiine was referred to India for emergency operation after he was diagnosed with a hole in the heart, swelling on the left side of the heart at Lacor Hospital and Mulago National Referral Hospital. His lungs are also filled with fluid.
The locals in Lira have so far raised shs15 million in a car wash dubbed ‘Save Twine Car Wash’ held on Thursday. His father, Fred Atwiine says they hope to leave next week if the funds are available.
