October 13, 2021

Immaculate is a 36-year-old tailor. She is married and has three children. She attended an institute to learn how to tailor, and she also farms to grow food for her family. Her husband sells Chapati (a type of East African flat bread) at a small trading center near their home.

For six months, Immaculate has had an epigastric hernia. She experiences lower abdominal pain, particularly when she does strenuous work. She visited our medical partner’s care center for examination and surgery was recommended to treat her condition.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Immaculate receive treatment. On October 14th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently. Now, she needs help raising $230 to fund her procedure and care.

Immaculate shared, “I have tried to seek treatment before but could not access it due to limited finances. I appeal for your help.”
