September 30, 2018

Kasaasa is small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is married with eight children.

Six months ago, Kasaasa has had an inguinal hernia. This sometimes restricts his movement due to pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on October 2, 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 Kasaasa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kasaasa says, “I hope for a better life after surgery because I will be free from this condition and in good health.”
