July 6, 2020

Tumubwine is a farmer from Uganda. She is married and a mother of five children. Her son is married and makes a living as a small-scale farmer. She has four daughters, two are also married and work as small-scale farmers while the other two are still in school. She and her husband grow food crops to eat and make a living by selling the surplus.

Five years ago, Tumubwine developed an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes her pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on July 7th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Tumubwine’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Tumubwine shared, “I am so hopeful about having a better quality of life free from all this pain and expect to resume with farming after I have fully recovered.”
