MbangirwaKibuka is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is married with five children. For 18 years, MbangirwaKibuka has had bilateral inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue death or damage. Fortunately, on July 16, 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 MbangirwaKibuka’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kibuka says, “I think my health will be restored because it has been longstanding and even I had lost hope but God does his way and now am looking forward to receiving support from SAFE and I continue with farming.”
