Timbaganya underwent hernia treatment.

Timbaganya’s surgery was successful! His doctors performed a herniorrhaphy treatment that repaired his right inguinal hernia. He is doing much better with little pain at the incision site. He will soon be able to move well and experience an improved quality of life.

Timbaganya shared, “May the good Lord protect you my donors who have supported my surgery. Thank you for restoring my health. I will continue with my construction work once I am fully recovered.”

Timbaganya is a construction worker from Uganda. He is a married father to four children. One is a primary teacher and the rest are still studying in both secondary and primary levels. His wife is a subsistence farmer who relies on a small piece of land where she grows crops and rears some animals.

Since ten years ago, Timbaganya has had an inguinal hernia. He feels pain on lifting heavy loads and can’t stand for long. Fortunately, on April 21st, 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 Timbaganya’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Timbaganya says, “I hope that I will get fine after my surgery is done.”
