Kagora underwent hernia repair surgery.

After having been diagnosed with a bilateral inguinal hernia with a lipoma, Kagora successfully received a herniorrhaphy and excision treatment. He is finally free from pain and risk of future complications. He hopes to resume his day-to-day duties with full strength after his recovery.

Smiling, Kagora shares his appreciation, “Thanks so much for having sponsored my surgery. I am extremely happy to see that am now healthy, energetic, and enthusiastic to resuming with farming to keep my family moving.”

Kagora is a 61-year-old married father. He and his wife have six children, including four daughters and two sons. He earns a living by growing bananas and coffee on his land.

For three years, Kagora has had a bilateral inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain, especially when he coughs, carries heavy loads, or walks long distances. Without treatment, the hernia could become strangulated.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Kagora receive treatment. On June 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Now, AMH is requesting $230 to fund Kagora’s surgery. Once complete, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kagora shared, “my doctor says the only treatment to my condition is surgery and yet my pockets are really dry to help me afford it. If I am given your support, the surgery will be done and I will regain my health and resume with my activities well.”
