about Tibyampa's recovery.

July 22, 2019

Tibyampa is a small-scale farmer from Kenya. He is married with six children. For three years, Tibyampa has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort and if not treated, the hernia may cause intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on July 23, 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 Tibyampa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Tibyampa says, “I am hopeful for a better life style after surgery as I will be relieved of this hernia and I continue with farming.”
