Brief Answer:
Seek help from an Endocrinologist

Detailed Answer:

It looks like your husband is suffering from Hypogonadism. Which means that testosterone is not getting produced by the testes.
It is usually treated by giving testosterone and it is called 'testosterone replacement therapy'. Here testosterone is given either as a dermal patch or injections, by replacing testosterone artificially it will stimulate spermatogenesis. (which is nothing but production of sperms in the body)
The best specialist to approach for this issue is an endocrinologist. I strongly recommend you XXXXXXX an endocrinologist before seeking a donor.

I hope I was of help, I will be happy to get back to you if you have any further questions
