Ainomugisha underwent her hernia repair.

Ainomugisha underwent a successful herniorrhaphy treatment due to epigastric hernia. She is able to move well, much better than she used to before. She reports improvement in her condition as she hopes for a better lifestyle after her full recovery.

Note from our medical partner: The hernia ended up being an epigastric hernia and not a supra umbilical hernia as earlier indicated.

Ainomugisha says, “I am grateful for this support as I could not make it myself due to limited finances. Glory to God. I hope to continue with farming after my recovery.”

Ainomugisha is a farmer from Uganda. She is a single mother with one child who is still studying in school. She earns a living through practicing small-scale farming and the small money she makes is used for taking care of her child and paying her school fee because she gets no other support from the father’s side.

Since four years ago, Ainomugisha has had an umbilical hernia. This hernia causes her pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on March 10th, 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 Ainomugisha’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Ainomugisha says, “I hope that all will go on well and I will be able to regain my health.”

Ku

Ku is an 11-year-old student from Thailand. Ku lives with his mother, four brothers and a sister in a refugee camp. All of his siblings also go to school, except for his oldest brother, who used to work with their mother as agricultural day labourers. However, since the outbreak of Covid-19 in 2020, they have not been able to leave the camp easily to find work. Ku's father works as a day labourer outside of the camp, but has also been unable to find consistent work due to the pandemic. Ku's family receives some financial support from an external organisation, but it is not enough to cover their expenses, and they shared that they often borrow rice or money from their neighbors. In March 2021, Ku and his friends were playing tag that led him to have a bad fall. Ku had taken off his sandals and left them at the top of a hill. When he ran up the rocky hill to fetch his sandals, he slipped and stuck out his left hand to break his fall, breaking his wrist. Currently, Ku’s left hand and forearm are very painful. He cannot bend his wrist and can only move his fingers slightly. Before his accident, Ku was able to prepare his own meals and set up his mosquito net at night. But now, he needs someone to help him do these tasks. With the help of our medical partner, Burma Children Medical Fund, Ku will undergo surgery to reset his fractured bones and ensure proper healing. The procedure is scheduled for March 10th and will cost $1,500. This procedure will help Ku use his left hand again and live pain-free. He will be able to cook his own meals again and set up his mosquito net by himself. Now, he and his family need help raising money for this procedure. Ku's mother shared, "After he receives treatment, I want Ku to continue his studies until he graduates and becomes a medic."
