Ndagire is a peasant farmer and mother of five children from Uganda. She came to our facility with complaints of inguinal swelling that has persisted for the past three years. The swelling has limited her work in the farm as she cannot sustain long hours standing.

She had not been to any hospital previously due to financial problems. She was diagnosed in our hospitals with inguinal hernia and herniorrhaphy recommended. After treatment, Ndagire will be able to work with ease and less pain.

Ndagire and her husband work on their farm to make ends meet. Unfortunately, she was not able to study due to tribal wars and was always on the run. Her children are still in school, which drains their income.

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

Ndagire says, “I am more hopeful that my surgery will be successful so that I can continue with my farm work.”
