Kyomuhendo is a farmer from Uganda. She is married and a mother of seven children, including four girls and three boys all who are still in school studying at different levels. She completed seventh grade in school, but never proceeded due to lack of school fees. She earns a living from small scale farming and so does her husband. They grow crops like beans, maize, and millet but without more modern farming methods, she shared that their yields are low.
Since three years ago, Kyomuhendo has had a supraumbilical hernia. She experiences abdominal pain, discomfort, and constipation. Fortunately, on July 21st, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Kyomuhendo’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Kyomuhendo says: “I think that if I successfully undergo my surgery under your support, I will regain my strength and can resume with farming.”
