Kamugisha is a 72-year-old man and a father of six children, including four sons and two daughters. He lives with his wife and two grandchildren and shared that he loves the company of his grandchildren. He and his wife are peasant farmers and they also raise two cows.
For about a year, Kamugisha has had a left inguinal hernia. The hernia has caused swelling and is painful, especially when he does strenuous activities. He can’t sit or stand for long and struggles to ride his motorcycle. Without treatment, he could continue to experience pain or the hernia could become strangulated.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Kamugisha to receive treatment. On June 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $230 to fund Kamugisha’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Kamugisha shared, “I hope that when am given your support, I will be treated and relieved from my pain, and I hope to continue living in good health.”
