Akankwasa is a farmer from Uganda. She is a mother of seven children.
For four years, Akankwasa has had an epigastric hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result to intestinal tissue damage and death. Fortunately, on January 16, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $249 to fund Akankwasa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
She says, “After surgery I will have peace of mind and resume working in my fields.”
