Tumukunde is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She has four small children.
For five years, Tumukunde has had an umbilical hernia. This hernia causes her pain and discomfort, and this is affecting her ability to work Fortunately, on August 2, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Tumukunde’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Tumukunde says, “I hope to continue with cultivation after surgery since it’s where I get money to support my family.”
