Kapere is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. Kapere is married with two children and all are in school studying. The firstborn is in secondary and the lastborn is in primary school. Both he and his wife practice small scale farming.
Four years ago, Kapere developed an inguinal scrotal hernia. The hernia causes him pain and if not treated, he will be at risk of intestinal tissue damage or death. Fortunately, on August 18, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Kapere’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Kapere says, “I hope that when I am relieved from this condition, I will be able to start working hard through farming so that my family can survive better.”
