Kajara shared, “I think my life will be renewed and I will be able to resume with my farm work as I am still the sole provider to my daughter and three of my grandchildren.”

Kajara is a 61-year-old man and a father of six children, including five sons and one daughter. Kajara is a small-scale farmer who grows bananas and coffee. He shared that his wife sadly passed away some time ago.

For about a year, Kajara has had a bilateral inguinal hernia. He experiences pain, particularly when passing urine or doing strenuous activities.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Kajara receive treatment.
