September 7, 2020

Kikafunda is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father to seven children, including five sons with three still studying and two driving motorcycle taxis. His two daughters are married and are now small-scale farmers. Kikafunda holds a degree in social work and social administration and has all along been working with NGOs, but lost his job. He now does farming where he earns from his banana plantation, but since he still has children studying, the money he earns from the plantation alone can’t sustain him and provide to the family.

For some time now, Kikafunda has had a left inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him weakness and pain and prevents him from working. Fortunately, on September 8th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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

Kikafunda told us: “I hope to get relief because I have really had this condition for so long and it has given me a hard time.”
