James is a 75-year-old, hardworking farmer from southwestern Uganda. He has been married to his wife for fifty years and together they have five children and twenty-five grandchildren. The money they earn from selling their coffee beans helps pay for his grandchildren’s school fees. When he has free time, James enjoys listening to the news on the radio. He also likes to spend time with his grandchildren, and he loves to tell them stories.
For the past two years, James has been suffering from a hernia that has made it difficult to work in his banana and coffee fields. Seeking treatment through our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, he is scheduled to have hernia repair surgery on June 2. The $229 requested will cover the total cost of his procedure.
After his surgery, James hopes to rebuild his banana fields, many of which have recently been eaten by weevils. James would “like to tell all the donors ‘thank you’ for helping him to rebuild his strength. He hopes God will bless them abundantly for the service they provide to people.”
