Gumoshabe is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. She is married with two children.

For one year, Gumoshabe has had an umbilical hernia. This hernia causes her pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on August 2, 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 Gumoshabe’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Gumoshabe says, “I look forward to being helped so as I may have a better life than I had. This will make me continue with farming.”
