Byanyima underwent hernia surgery.

Byanyima underwent a successful laporatomy treatment due to advance gastric tumor. On initial assessment he was assessed for herniorrhaphy due to umbilical hernia but as surgeon opened for hernia, he suspected a tumor in the stomach and ended up opening to remove the tumor. He is fine now and slowly will get better.

Byanyima says, “I was almost dying but fortunate enough, you have saved my life. May you be rewarded by heavenly Father. I hope to continue with cultivation.”

Byanyima is a small scale farmer from Uganda. He is married father to 9 children whom are all causal laborers. Both him and the wife are small scale farmers.

Three years ago, Byanyima has had an umbilical hernia. This causes him discomfort and may result in intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on September 17, 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 Byanyima’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Byanyima says “I wish my condition improves so that I have my health back to normal so as to continue with cultivation.”
