Barihare is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is a widower with nine children.

For four months, Barihare has had an inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage and death. Fortunately, on January 8, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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