August 19, 2019

Turyamuronda is a small scale farmer from Uganda. He is a widower with four children; all married with no stable jobs however he lost the wife in 2000. Himself practices small scale farming and can’t afford money for his surgery.

Twenty years ago, Turyamuronda has had an inguinal scrotal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort and if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue death or damage. Fortunately, on August 20, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Turyamuronda’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Turyomurugyendo says, “I hope to get better after surgery and I continue with farming.”
