Joy is a small-scale farmer. She is a 45-year-old widow since 2011 and has four children, all of whom are in school: two in primary class four and two in high school. She lives in a semi-permanent house with two rooms, which she shared is almost falling down due to her inability to finance repairs. Joy has not sought medical treatment before since her small-scale farming cannot pay for her healthcare, She is appealing for your support to cover the cost of her surgery.
Since about one year ago, Joy has had a supra-umbilical hernia. The swelling has severely impacted her ability to perform her daily activities, as she is unable to bend or lift anything, which reduces her work performance, leading to a poor quality of life. If left untreated, she faces the risk of intestinal obstruction. Fortunately, on April 13th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Joy’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Joy says, “I am blessed to be in your favors, and I appeal for your consideration to help me to undergo surgery and resume my work.”
