Tukamushaba is a peasant farmer from Uganda. She is a 30 year old mother to three children, all still studying. She practices small scale farming to earn livingShe has abdominal pains associated with reducible supra in bilateral swelling for four years now. It worsens on coughing and when carrying out any heavy-duty activities. This has affected her quality of life and if not treated, symptoms may persist.

Tukamushaba had never been to a hospital for medical attention of her condition but when it worsened, she decided to be seen by a doctor. She was examined and diagnosed with epigastric hernia recommending herniorrhaphy as the best treatment to her condition. She couldn’t afford the costs of surgery. She hopes to resume work upon successful surgery.

Fortunately, on December 10th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Tukamushaba’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Tukamushaba says, “I am praying that I may have a successful surgery so as to continue with cultivation effectively.”
