Gad is a 43-year-old small farmer from Uganda. He works with his wife, Phionah, to grow maize and rice. They have six children, five of whom are in school. They are very proud of this accomplishment. When not working, Gad enjoys spending time with his children and helping them with schoolwork. He is also an active member of his church.
For the last five years, Gad has had to reduce the amount he works due to pain from his appendix. He is in need of surgery to remove the organ but has not been able to afford the surgery.
On August 2, Gad will undergo surgery at our medical parent’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is asking for $307 to cover the cost of his surgery.
“I would like to give all my appreciation to the donors for helping me with this surgery,” says Gad. “I am hoping that after my surgery, I can return to supporting my family again.”
