Kobusinge is 62 years old and the single mother of six children. Her youngest two are now grown up and have jobs. Kobusinge is a farmer.
In 2012, Kobusinge had laparotomy in a regional hospital due to intestinal obstruction. She healed well, but after three months her scar became tender and began to swell. Kobusinge returned to the same hospital and they performed an abdominal scan, which showed that she had an incisional hernia. They referred her to our medical partner’s care center, Holy Family Virika Hospital, for hernia repair surgery. If not treated, Kobusinge may suffer from hernia twisting and blocking.
In order to help Kobusinge, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $249 to help fund her surgery and hospital stay. After surgery she will have peace of mind and plans to resume farming.
She is scheduled to undergo surgery on September 13.
