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.

Atuhaire

Ampaire is a 25 year old single mother to one child who a preschooler. She is from a family of three girls, all now married and small-scale farmers. She shared with us that she stopped schooling during senior high school after getting pregnant and hasn't been able to go back. She currently stays at her maternal home together with her parents and her child. She earns a living from farming where she mostly grows food crops for their family to eat but at times she sells the surplus to generate an income for the family. She sometimes works on other people's gardens to earn an addition income whenever need for urgent money comes. Atuhaire came to the hospital with lower abdominal pain and a persistent backache for three years. She says she feels a solid mass in her abdomen and says she often feels chest congestion, easy fatiguability, and pain when she sleeps on her right side of the body. This has exposed her to having a poorer quality of life and if not treated, the presenting symptoms may persist. Atuhaire had only ever been to Kisiizi Hospital and was seen by the doctor who examined her and recommended her for surgical treatment but since she had limited finances, she decided to persist with her condition. Things worsened thus she decided to come to Nyakibale Hospital for surgery. Having reached here, she was examined by the doctor who requested a scan. The results indicated a Tubo-Ovarian mass and she is recommended for cystectomy treatment. Atuhaire shared: “I hope to get a better health and relief after surgery so that I can continue with cultivation to provide to my family."
