Kyarimpa and his wife are small-scale farmers from Uganda. He has three children, all of whom are married and self-employed.

Seven months ago, Kyarimpa developed an inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him discomfort and impacts his ability to farm. Fortunately, on June 16, he will undergo a hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Kyarimpa’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

“I‘m hopeful that my surgery will be successful and enable me to attain good health so that I continue with farming,” shared Kyarimpa.
