Foster has funded healthcare for 1 patient in 1 country.
Abdul is a farmer from Uganda. He is married but they do not have children. Earlier in life, he joined his brother’s butchery selling meat, but later decided to try out farming and it’s from farming that he has managed to sustain himself and his wife. Together they live in a single-roomed rental house. Since three years, Abdul has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him weakness and pain and prevents him from working to his fully potential. Fortunately, on December 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Abdul's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently and be able to work more easily again. Abdul says, “I hope to get a better life after surgery and resume with farming after I am feeling better and recovered.”
