May 11, 2020

Abaho is a 9-year-old student from Uganda. He is the middle child in a family of three children. He and his elder brother are in primary school while his younger sister is still too young for school and is still breastfeeding. Abaho’s father is a mechanic while his mother was a tailor. The family lives in a single-roomed rental house.

Since two years ago, Abaho has had an umbilical hernia. This causes him abdominal discomfort and pain. Fortunately, on May 12th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Abaho’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Abaho’s mother says: “I hope that my child will be healed once he undergoes his surgery for a good health and continue with his education to have a brighter future.”
