Adi has funded healthcare for 3 patients in 2 countries.
Beineki is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is married with eight children. For two months, Beineki has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain, and this is affecting his ability to work on his farm. Fortunately, on January 3, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Beineki's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Beineki says, “I will be very happy when am free from this condition and I continue with farming.”
Hong is a rice farmer from Cambodia. He has two sons, three daughters, and ten grandchildren. He likes to listen to monks praying on the radio. Two weeks ago, Hong developed a cataract in his left eye, causing him blurry vision and irritation. He has difficulty seeing things clearly, recognizing faces, and going anywhere outside. When Hong learned about our medical partner, Children's Surgical Centre, he traveled for four hours seeking treatment. On January 7, doctors will perform an intra-capsular cataract extraction and an intraocular lens implant in his left eye. After recovery, he will be able to see clearly. Now, he needs help to fund this $211 procedure. He says, "I hope I can spend time at the local pagoda and spend time with my grandchildren."

Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
