Ainembabazi is a 23-month-old baby girl from Uganda. Her parents are farmers who cultivate food for both home consumption and for sale.
Ainembabazi was born with an umbilical hernia that has become more swollen and painful over time. Her parents sought treatment through our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, and Ainembabazi is now scheduled to undergo hernia repair surgery to alleviate her pain on June 21. Her family is requesting $249 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.
“After surgery my daughter will grow with good health without on and off fevers she has been getting every night,” says Ainembabazi’s father.
