Zaamukunda is a 45-year-old woman from Uganda. She is a mother of two children: a boy and a girl.
For two years, Zaamukunda has had a swelling in her epigastric region, which has progressively increased in size. In June 2017, Zaamukunda started experiencing pain after eating and feeling the urge to vomit. She was diagnosed with an epigastric hernia, but she has no funds for surgery. If not treated, Zaamukunda may develop hernia twisting and blocking.
Fortunately, with the help of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, Zaamukunda is scheduled to receive her surgery on September 20.
Now, she needs help raising $249 to pay for surgery. After surgery, she hopes to have peace of mind and resume her farming.
