Gumisiriza underwent hernia repair surgery and has a full, healthy life ahead.

After diagnosis of a hernia, Gumisiriza successfully received a herniorrhaphy treatment and is already healing well. His mother says that Gumisiriza is no longer experiencing pain. With full recovery, the little boy will be able to resume school and pursue his dream of new creating things (his parents hope he’ll be an engineer one day!).

Gumisiriza’s parents shared: “I am so happy and I don’t know how best to thank you, I pray that God blesses you as I was very desperate to see my son treated.”

Gumisiriza is a four-year-old boy. He’s in preschool and his mother shared that he already loves writing numbers. He and his younger brother live with their mother, while their father works away from home and is able to visit from time-to-time. Gumisiriza’s mother supplements her husband’s income by operating a small grocery shop.

For eight months, Gumisiriza has had a right reducible inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain, especially when he is playing. He needs to undergo hernia repair surgery to reduce the risk of complications like strangulation.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Gumisiriza receive surgery. On June 9th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center and now, AMH is requesting $230 to fund Gumisiriza’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to grow and play along with his friends.

Gumisiriza’s mother shared, “my heart will be filled with joy and I will be really blessed if am given support for my child’s surgery.”
