about Kyigambo's recovery.

December 30, 2019

Kyigambo is a 4 year old from Uganda. Her parents operate a small scale retail shop earning very little profit.

Since birth, Kyigambo has had an umbilical hernia. She feels pain when she is playing, coughing and after eating. Fortunately, on December 31st, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Kyigambo’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kyagambo’s father says, “I hope my child will get better after her surgery and believe she is brilliant enough to study hard for a brighter future.”
