Kabeho is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is married with seven children.

For six months, Kabeho has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him discomfort and pain and is affecting his work on the farm. Fortunately, on February 5, 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 Kabeho’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kabeho says, “I look forward to being better after surgery than I am now and I continue with farming support to my family.”

Elizabeth

Two weeks ago, Elizabeth sustained a fracture of the tibia fibula after a fall on her right leg. She was taken to county referral hospital where she was admitted and a back slab was fixed to stabilize her fracture as she waits to be operated. Ten days later, there were no signs of her being treated because the family didn’t have money needed for the surgery. The fracture site developed blisters which later ruptured and formed wounds. Elizabeth's family requested to be referred to AIC Kapsowar hospital hoping they will receive help because they were worried about her condition. Elizabeth was brought to our hospital accompanied by a few family members. An X-ray was done on arrival which confirmed the fracture of the proximal tibia fibula. After a social worker's assessment, Elizabeth was admitted as she waits to be operated. Elizabeth is a mother of four girls. Her daughters are all married and they live with their husbands in the upcountry. Elizabeth's husband Joseph is old and he cannot perform any duties at home such as farming. Elizabeth is the breadwinner of the family since she tends to the farm. She feels his husband is now suffering because they don’t have enough food in the home and they only depend on farming. Elizabeth requires urgent surgery to fix her fracture but she cannot afford medical treatment due to lack of funds. $968.00 is needed for her to continue with treatment. The family is requesting for financial support to help Elizabeth get treatment required. Elizabeth’s daughter says, “Mum is sleeping helplessly in bed, we have nothing to offer for her surgery. I hope she gets treated, she really deserves a good life.”
