Nabimanya is a student in secondary school, and shared that he prefers sciences to arts and dreams of becoming a doctor. He also loves playing football. His father is a teacher and his mother is a small scale farmer. His parents are separated and he’s an only child in his family. Nabimanya stays with his grandmother, who is a small scale farmer earning a living from her banana plantation to support his education.
For eight years, Nabimanya has had a painful hernia in his lower left abdomen. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort, especially when he plays football. This is also affecting his studies. Fortunately, on May 25th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Nabimanya’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Nabimanya says, “I hope to resume with school in good health once I have fully recovered.”
