Justus is an elderly man from Uganda. He is a peasant farmer and the only breadwinner in the family despite the advanced years. He lives with his wife and ten grandchildren. He has been struggling with an inguinal swelling for the past year, which has made it hard for him to engage in his usual active and heavy duties.
His wife is bed ridden and needs all of his money for her treatment. He requires surgery but is not able to raise funds needed. With successful surgery, Justus will be able to lead a better life with less pain and discomfort.
Fortunately, on December 10th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Justus’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Justus says, “I am expecting to have a successful surgery so that I can regain energy to continue with cultivation.”
