Zirihihi is undergoing other treatment before his surgery can take place.

Our Medical Partner just shared that Zirihihi has been undergoing treatment at the national hospital in Uganda for the past four months. The medical team would like him to complete that treatment before his hernia surgery moves forward and asked our Watsi community to support another patient in need of surgery right now.

Zirihihi is a farmer and married with four wives, and a father to twenty six children. Of his eleven sons and fifteen daughters, he shared that so far four of his sons and two of his daughters are still in school. All the others are married and are small scale farmers too. Zirihihi studied and completed primary seven in school, at first working as a primary school teacher, and later becoming a farmer. He has a banana plantation and brews homemade alcohol locally called “warage” in order to support his family.

For the last five years, Zirihihi has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on January 5th, 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 Zirihihi’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently, and better able to take care of his family.

Zarihihi shared, “I hope to feel better once my surgery is done and hope to continue with farming.”
