June 1, 2020

Kwesiga is a carpenter from Uganda. He is a married father to three children all still in schools studying. He earns a living from a carpentry workshop which he operates with his other two brothers in Ndorerero trading centre. His wife is a small-scale farmer who mostly grows food crops like maize beans, cassava ,and millet for their family to eat. He has pending school fee loans he acquired from the bank while paying for his children’s school fees.

Since two years ago, Kwesiga has had inguinal hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on June 2nd, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Kwesiga’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kwesiga says: “I hope to get healed for my condition after surgery, get a healthy new life, and continue with work because I still need to struggle and provide for my family.”
