Katusiime is a child from Uganda. She is the first born of three children. She is in primary school and would like to become a doctor in the future.
Four years ago, Katusiime developed an incisional hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue twisting and blocking. Fortunately, on April 11, 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 Katusiime’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably.
Her father says, “My daughter has suffered with this condition. We are worried of her health. She needs help. We are unable to pay for treatment.’’
