Korukiiko is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a widow and a mother of twelve children.
For four years, Korukiiko has had an umbilical hernia. This causes her pain and discomfort and if not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue death or damage. Fortunately, on December 18, 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 Korukiiko’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Korukiiko says, “I hope to obtain good health after surgery in my old age.”
