Elias is a 68-year-old father of six. He and his wife rear sheep and farm crops for a living. Their oldest child is now 43 years old, while their youngest child is 26 years old. Elias shared that his children are not able to provide much support for him and his wife regarding his medical care due to their own family obligations.
For four years, Elias has had a left inguinal hernia. As a result, he experiences pain, and the different medications he has tried have been unable to help. Elias visited our medical partner’s care center Rushoroza Hospital, where the doctors recommend surgery in order for him to heal.
Fortunately, on April 19th, Elias will finally undergo hernia repair surgery. Upon recovery, he will be able to live more comfortably and confidently. AMH is requesting $170 to fund Elias’s surgery and care.
Elias shared, “I hope to get well again through surgery after trying several medications without improvement. I hope I’ll be able to continue rearing my sheep after recovering completely.”
