Mpaka is a farmer from Uganda. He is married and a father of 15 children.
For two years, Mpaka has had an inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain and discomfort, and if not treated it may lead to intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on May 9, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $249 to fund Mpaka’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.
He says, “After surgery I will continue with farming since it’s our family’s source of food.”
