April 24, 2020

George is an elderly man from Uganda who has been struggling with a bilateral inguinal hernia for the past two years. He complains of pain and whenever he coughs, stands for long hours, or strains while on the farm, the pain becomes unbearable.

He had been to a hospital previously, had a scan, and doctors referred to him to Watsi’s Partner Nyakibale Hospital for treatment. He could not come immediately due to limited income. Successful surgery will reduce the pain and chances of complications such as strangulation.

George is a father of fifteen children from his two wives. He owns a small plantation of bananas and coffee from where he earns a small living. With a large family and limited income, distributing the income and leaving some for medical care is tasking for him. He appeals for financial assistance.

Fortunately, on April 25th, 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 George’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

George says, “I have hopes that maybe when I undergo my surgery, I will be healed from my condition and live once again.”
