A 21-year-old University of Zimbabwe (UZ) student is appealing for financial assistance for an emergency operation to remove a tumor which developed on his right shoulder.

Steve John Mutapiri was diagnosed with the condition four years ago and has been getting treatment at Karanda Mission Hospital in Mashonaland Central where he was previously operated on without much success.

“Two weeks after the operation, the tumor started to grow bigger and grew more painful until now,” he said. “The condition started in 2017.”

Steve said he was forced to suspend his studies at UZ where he was a second year student studying Civil Engineering.

Steve, who is staying with his elder brother in South Africa, needs R150 000 for the operation.
