George is an 82-year-old farmer from rural Uganda. He currently grows cassava, beans, bananas, millet, maize, and coffee, which he sells to support his family. In his free time, George loves to visit with friends and relatives. He especially enjoys spending time with his grandchildren. He has taught them how to dance, sing traditional songs, and tell local legends.
For the last three years, George has experienced a painful hernia, but he did not seek medical care until the pain worsened in the last two months. George’s friend connected him with Watsi and a local care center in Uganda, and he was able to seek treatment.
George will need surgery to repair his hernia, which will relieve his pain and discomfort. He was able to contribute $8 towards his treatment and will need an additional $229 to cover his care. The procedure is scheduled for September 11.
George looks forward to getting back to his coffee garden and sharing stories with his children. He thanks the donors for their generosity.
