Tayebwa is a 27 year old driver from Uganda. He is married and the father of two children; a six year old boy and a four year old girl. They currently rent a place to live, but they bought a piece of land and plan to build a house for their family. His biggest wish in the future is to have a cattle farm and a car of his own. He likes animals and enjoys being with his family.
Two years ago, Tayebwa started feeling pain in the epigastric region. Due to the pain, he is unable to sit for a long time or lift heavy items. He has never visited a hospital due to lack of money. If left untreated, Tayebwa may suffer many complications.
$249 will fund the hernia repair surgery Tayebwa needs to be healthy. After the surgery, he plans to continue working as a driver and build a house for his family.
“I want to work hard and build a house for my family. It will take time, but I will do it,” Tayebwa shared.
