Namara is a cheerful farmer from southwestern Uganda. He is a father of five, with two married daughters and three sons who are still in school. To support their education and the daily needs of the family, Namara cultivates tomatoes and cabbages on his farm together with his wife.
For two years, Namara has had a left inguinal hernia which causes him pain during strenuous work and daily activities. He tried treating the condition with herbal medicine without success. Namara was referred by a friend to our medical partner’s care center, where a hernia repair surgery was recommended to reduce future complications. On June 28th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at the care center, and our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $230 to fund Namara’s procedure.
Namara shares, “I hope to resume farming to take care of my family’s needs much better.”
