Tambwe is a 17-year-old and the oldest in his family of five children.
Since childhood, Tambwe has had a right inguinal hernia. Over the years, without treatment, his condition became a lot more severe. Eventually, Tambwe stopped attending school in Form Two because the pain made him unable to concentrate on his studies. Unable to study or work jobs to earn money, Tambwe is unable to afford the cost of his care and appeals for financial support.
Fortunately, on May 3rd, Tambwe will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $566 to fund Tambwe’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Tabwe shared, “I wish to have this condition treated so that I could at least be able to work and make a living for myself. I appreciate any support you can provide.”
