Ithungu is a farmer from Uganda. He is a widower and a father of four children.
For ten years, Ithungu has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort and if not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue death or damage. Fortunately, on April 10, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $249 to fund Ithungu’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
He says, “After surgery I will do simple work at home.”
