Majooma is a 72-year-old farmer and a married father to two daughters, who are both married and are small scale farmers. He also has six sons; two are teachers, one is a mechanic, and three are small scale farmers. He earns a living from his banana and coffee plantation and operates the farm with his wife.
For two years, Majooma has had an inguinal hernia. He feels pain whenever he sits or stands for too long and whenever he coughs. Fortunately, on April 1st, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Majooma’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Majooma shared, “I ask you to kindly enable me to undergo my surgery because it’s the only way I can regain my health. I will continue with farming.”
