Arinda underwent hernia surgery.

Arinda had a successful herniorrhaphy treatment to treat his inguinal hernia. He is now pain-free, with less discomfort and the medical team expects him to recover fully. He will be able to grow well and live a better life ahead.

Arinda’s mother said to us, “I am now very happy to find that my son’s health is restored. I too, my mind will be stable as I see my child growing well with no such condition. May God bless you abundantly.”

Arinda is a 20-month-old baby from Uganda and the only child to his parents. His mother is a roadside trader who sells onions, tomatoes, and fresh beans. His father is a bicycle mechanic and they live together in a single-roomed rental house deep in the village.

Since birth, Arinda has had an inguinal scrotal hernia. Arinda is in pain and if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on September 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Arinda’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently as he grows up.

Arinda’s mother says, “I hope that by surgery my child will get well to have proper growth like all the others.”
