George is a small-scale farmer who works alongside his wife, and they primarily cultivate potatoes. He completed his education through sixth grade before discontinuing his studies. George's eldest child is 52 years old, while the youngest is 23 years old. Most of his children are married and have familial responsibilities. For around nine months, George has had a right inguinal hernia. It started as a small painless swelling in his inguinal region. Initially, he believed it would resolve on its own over time, given the absence of pain. Consequently, he didn't seek medical attention at the time. However, he recently began experiencing elevated temperatures around the inguinal area, particularly when standing for extended periods. Concerned, he shared his symptoms with a friend, who advised him to seek medical attention. George reports that he can work as usual and his productivity has not been significantly affected. However, he fears that if left untreated, his condition may hinder his ability to work effectively in the future. Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help. On July 12, George will undergo hernia repair surgery at our AMH's care center. AMH is requesting $170 to fund George's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. George says, “I hope for a successful surgery. I will continue with farming so that I may be able to take good care of myself and my family.”
