April 2, 2020

Magambo is a bus conductor from Uganda. He is a married father to seven children, one boy who has just completed university and the rest are all daughters who are still studying in school. He earns a living by working as a bus conductor and says his salary is the family’s major source of income. He owns a small piece of land on which his wife practices cultivation by growing crops for them to eat at home and at times can sell off any surplus to enable her to also contribute something to the family’s income.

Since three years ago, Magambo has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and hinders him from working. Fortunately, on April 7th, 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 Magambo’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Magambo says, “I have hope that my surgery will go well.”
