Tukahirwa is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. Her husband passed away in 2000, leaving her with two children.
For three years, Tukahirwa has had a bilateral inguinal hernia. This hernia causes her pain and discomfort. If not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue damage and blocking. Fortunately, on April 10, 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 Tukahirwa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Tukahirwa says, “I hope to get a better lifestyle after surgery and continue with cultivation.”
