April 27, 2020

Turyahikayo is a small scale farmer from Uganda with a banana and coffee plantation to earn a living. He shared that due to using older agriculture methods, yields are always lower and this has affected his income.

Turyahikayo presented at the hospital complaining of difficulty in urinating and also with frequent abdominal pain for over a period of two years. Turyahikayo has an umbilical hernia. He says the swelling worsens when he is coughing and when lifting any heavy objects. This has affected his work performance since he no longer attends to his farm. If not treated, his condition will persist and the hernia may become strangulated. Fortunately, on April 28th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Turyahikayo’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Turyahikayo says, “I hope to get fine after my surgery and regain my health once again.”
