Ericarido underwent hernia repair surgery.

Ericarido had a successful herniorrhaphy treatment. He has some pain on the incision site but will be relieved as he recovers fully. He is already able to move easily and with full recovery, will be able to perform his duties well and continue earning a living, which is a big relief for him.

Ericarido told us: “A person like me, where could I get money for this surgery from? Thanks, donors for saving my life now that I am getting better I will continue working for a living.”

Ericarido is a 41-year-old man. He lives alone in a semi-permanent house. Whenever he can get work, he takes up casual labor jobs to make ends meet.

For some months now, Ericarido has had left inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain especially when he is doing physically demanding work. Surgery is required to repair his hernia, and has been scheduled for April 27th.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Ericarido’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently, and do physical labor without pain.

Ericarido says, “I myself have no money at all. I will be very glad when my condition is treated and I resume to my work and can earn a living.”
