Brian underwent fracture repair surgery.

Surgery was successful!

“Before the surgery, we were so worried. Brian was in pain, he could cry all night the situation was unbearable for us but as soon as he was operated, he recovered so fast. We could afford to sleep and feed him freely,” says his father.

Rombadi

Rombadi is a 34-year-old man from Uganda. He came to Nyakibale Hospital with inguinal area swelling that has been persistent for over five years. He feels pain and discomfort whenever he walks for a long distance, or does anything strenuous. This has strained his daily work as a bodaboda operator in western Uganda. Rombadi had never been to the hospital before due to financial constraints. Fortunately, he was referred to our partner facility where he was diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia. He requires herniorrhaphy to improve his lifestyle and productivity, and reduce the chances of further complications such as strangulation and intestinal obstruction. Rombadi's work provides him and his family with limited income, making life's requirement hard to meet. His wife works on the farm to provide additional income for their family. He is a father of three and sometimes works on the farm as well especially when business is down. Rombadi is not able to meet the cost of surgery and he appeals for critical support. Fortunately, on May 5th, he will undergo a hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Rombadi's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Rombadi says: “I hope that if all goes on well with my surgery, I will be able to continue with working to provide more to my family.”
