Charles is a 73-year-old man with five children who are all grown and have families of their own. He has a banana and coffee plantation on his land, but due to his old age, his productivity on his farm has been decreasing.
For three months, Charles has had an inguinal scrotal hernia. The hernia causes him pain and discomfort, especially when he is walking or working on the farm. He had a scan at a government facility before being referred to our medical partner’s care center for the treatment he needs.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Charles to receive treatment. On September 14th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Now, he needs help raising $230 to fund his procedure and care.
Charles shared, “I hope to recover from this condition so that I can continue farming and sustain my family.”
