about Ainomugisha's recovery.

January 13, 2020

Ainomugisha is a two-year-old girl from Uganda. Her parents are small-scale farmers. Ainomugisha is the only child to the young couple and they cannot afford her treatment.

Since about 18 months ago, Ainomugisha has had an umbilical hernia. This causes her to cry especially after meals and if not treated, she might suffer intestinal tissue damage or even death. Fortunately, on January 14th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Ainomugisha’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Ainomugisha’s mother says, “I pray that my child gets fine after surgery.”
