Allen underwent hernia repair surgery.

Allen’s surgery was a success! She experienced some pain at the surgical site after the procedure, but her recovery is going well. After years of discomfort, she is now relieved of pain and is no longer at risk of hernia complications. She shared that she is grateful for the kindness and support offered.

Allen expressed, “I am now fine and it’s all by your efforts. I really thank God for that because I had lost hope. I hope to continue with hustling for my children as l sell vegetables.”

Allen is a 33-year-old mother of two children. Allen sells vegetables for a living, while her husband operates a motorcycle taxi. Their family lives in a single rental room.

For two years, Allen has had an umbilical hernia. The hernia causes swelling near her abdomen, that gets especially painful when she strains. She has visited hospitals in the capital city, but could not afford the surgery costs.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH) is helping Allen to receive treatment. On September 15th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently. Now, she needs help raising $230 to fund her procedure and care.

Allen shared, “I will really be blessed to benefit from the support and will live to testify the goodness of God after am supported to undergo my surgery.”
