Aijuka is a child from Uganda. She is the only child to her newly married parents. Her father works at their local court office, while her mother operates a shop.
Since birth, Aijuka has had an umbilical hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage and death. Fortunately, on August 21, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Aijuka’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Aijuka’s mother says, “I wil be very pleased when my daughter receives treatment and becomes fine after surgery. I will be able to continue with working at a shop.”
