Virginia is a waitress from Kenya and a mother of one child. Virginia lives with her cousin in the city’s outskirts. From her work as a waitress, she is able to make ends meet for herself and her daughter.
Since four years ago, Virginia has had an umbilical hernia. This hernia causes her abdominal pain and if not treated, she may suffer intestinal tissue damage and death. Fortunately, on March 5th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $425 to fund Virginia’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Virginia says, “I will be grateful for the support to have the hernia repaired. It has really affected my daily life.”
