Mugisha is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father to four children. He and his wife earn a living through practicing small-scale farming. He grows native local food like ground nuts, maize, beans, and cassava. They farm basically for home consumption and he sells the surplus to provide other essential needs to his family like clothes and to pay for his children’s school fees.
Sine eight years ago, Mugisha has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain when walking and when standing for a long time. Fortunately, on March 9th, 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 Mugisha’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Mugisha says “I hope that I will be well after my operation and be healed from this condition.”
