Kabera is a 58-year-old married father of five from Uganda.
Kabera developed a swelling in his groin about two years ago. Over time, the swelling began to grow and become painful. He visited a nearby clinic and was given painkillers, but after they didn’t improve his condition, he sought treatment through our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation.
Kabera’s swelling was diagnosed as a hernia, and he was recommended to undergo surgery to alleviate his pain. If not treated, Kabera may suffer intestinal tissue damage. He is now scheduled to have hernia repair surgery on June 21, and is requesting $249 to cover the total cost of his procedure and care.
“After surgery I will continue with farming, it’s my only source of income,” Kabera says.
