Mashokye is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father of nine children, with three of them boys who are bodaboda drivers, two are builders, and all of his daughters are married and are small-scale farmers. He earns a living through farming and mostly grows beans, sweet potatoes, and maize. Unfortunately, he says the yields are often poor.
Three years ago, Mashokye has had an epigastric hernia. This hernia causes him severe pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on March 10th, 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 Mashokye’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Maskokye says, “I hope I get fine after my surgery and be relieved from pain after surgery.”
