November 27, 2019

Henry is a student from Uganda. Henry came to our facility complaining of a painful swell on his inguinal area. this has been the case for nine years. He says that due to persistent pain, he is usually affected psychologically and so are his academic assignments. He was previously seen in a different hospital where herniorrhaphy was recommended. However, there was no surgeon in the facility and he could not afford cost in the private hospital. He came to our facility since the swell was worsening by the day. He requires the surgery and appeals for financial assistance.

Henry is in school together with his sister courtesy of an academic scholarship. His mother is terminally ill, suffering from breast cancer. The father passed on in 2015. The family is frustrated and financially strained. Henry appeals for financial assistance.

Fortunately, on December 03, 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 Henry’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Henry says, “I hope to get well soon after surgery and go on with my education.”
