August 3, 2022

Semei is a humble and understanding 54-year-old family man from Uganda. He has two sons who are teachers, four daughter who are married, and two children who are still in school. Semei works as a small-scale farmer to support his family. He loves grazing goats and listening to the radio.

For three years, Semei has dealt with a left indirect inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him to experience severe pain, difficulty walking, and other troubling symptoms. The doctors were concerned that the hernia worsened, causing intestinal obstruction. However, a scan revealed that it fortunately has not reached that level. On August 4th, Semei will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund his surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Semei says “I couldn’t have risked staying with this pain all along. It’s only that I have always been limited financially. I appeal for your support to make my surgery possible.”
