Owakubariho is a farmer from Uganda. He married and is a father of six children, five of whom are in primary school.

Three years ago, Owakubariho has had a right inguinal hernia. It causes him pain, especially after working or lifting heavy objects. Fortunately, on May 17, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
