David is a 58-year-old minister from Uganda who enjoys reading the Bible and preparing lessons to share. He works alongside his wife at the local congregation to support the family. Together, David and his wife have seven children.
David first felt abdominal pain in 1978. He had chronic pain ever since and took pain medication for relief. Three years ago, physicians told David that he would need to have his inflamed appendix removed in order to avoid life-threatening complications associated with the appendix bursting. David could not afford the surgery so he once again elected to take pain medications.
This year, the pain became increasingly difficult to bear. Luckily, David found help at a community hospital funded by The Kellermann Foundation, one of our medical partners. On March 15, David will undergo surgical removal of his appendix. The Kellermann Foundation is requesting $307 to help fund the surgery. After this procedure, David will feel better and be able to return to his favorite activities.
David says, “I thank the people that are supporting Watsi, and most especially those donating towards my surgery. May God bless them abundantly.”
