Moses underwent hernia repair surgery.

Moses had a successful hernia surgery. He is no longer complaining of pain and is able to walk with ease. With a complete recovery, he will be able to resume building in good health.

Moses says “I thank my donors so much because I had spent 2 years with this condition, in pain and had tried everything but failed. I thank God to see that I am now okay and may He bless you abundantly for everything you’ve done for me.”

Moses is a builder. He’s a tall gentleman with a lot of stories and has kept his sense of humor through pain. He is a father to two daughters and two sons who are all in school. While he did not complete school, he joined a contracting company when he was young and became an experienced, skilled builder. Moses lives in a 3-roomed house with his wife and his four children.

For some time now, Moses has had a right inguinal hernia. The pain is worst when he stands for long periods and he can barely lift anything heavy. His job as a builder involves a lot of heavy lifting, and his hernia has hindered his work performance. Fortunately, on September 27th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Moses’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Moses told us, “I am the only provider to my family, my wife is not working. I am afraid when I lose my health, I will not be able to provide for them again but with your support, I have hopes and expect the best.”
