Raymond was attacked by unknown thugs as he returned from his internship. Raymond is a 2nd year DBA Student at Makerere University Business School. He was rescued by good Samaritans and rushed to the Spine Unit at Mulago Hospital where doctors found that the attack had damaged his spine leading to paralysis of the lower body. Despite undergoing a major surgery, Raymond has only been able to regain use of his upper body. He is currently unable to write, feed, and ease himself. He urinates using a catheter. He has as a result been out of school for over a year and stays at home in Kasokoso, Wakiso District. The specialists from India assessed him and have reassured the family that a second surgery will enable his lower body to recover and the paralysis will be gone.
