March 9, 2020

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.”
