April 6, 2020

Nahurira is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is a married mother to two children, both young and in school. She is a small-scale farmer who relies on her small piece of land to earn a living. She often times works on other people’s farms to earn an additional wage and to provide domestic essentials like soap and paraffin, and so does her husband. She lives in a small rental semi-permanent house around Kitanda town together with her husband and two children.

Two years ago, Nahurira has had a supra umbilical hernia. She feels severe pain after eating, abdominal discomfort, and the umbilical mass increases in size on coughing. Fortunately, on April 7th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Nahurira’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Nahurira says, “I hope that my surgery goes on well, I will be healed from my condition, and be able to continue with cultivation in order to support my family.”
