Innocent received a herniorrhaphy treatment.

Musinguzi’s surgery went on successfully where the hernia that was bringing him ill health was repaired. He no longer complains of needles and pins, he can sit and walk with ease and the swelling is no more. With complete recovery, he shared that he is glad to able to continue his passion and work.

Musinguzi says “all thanks go to you my donors for having made this possible for me, I was really worried and had even given up on my health but thanks so much for having restored it back. May God bless you.”

Innocent is a father of five children all of them in school. He managed to finish class 7 himself but could not proceed with his education. He later decided to be a preacher. From his preaching services, he is paid only $30 every Sunday. He is married and together with his family, they live a 3-roomed mud-built house.

For four years, Innocent has had right inguinal hernia. The hernia presents as a swelling around his inguinal area and makes it uncomfortable for him to walk. He went to a government hospital but could not receive surgery. At Nyakibale Hospital, he could not raise the money needed for surgery and thus appealed for help. Fortunately, on September 13th, he will be able to undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Innocent’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Innocent says: “it will be a great honour and I will be humble seeing my health improve. I really have a lot of things to do but with this pain, I can’t do much yet and I know my family needs me.”

Titus

Titus is a hardworking 24-year-old from Kenya. He is the only child to his single mother, who sells tea and porridge at the market. Due to their financial situation, Titus was compelled to drop out of high school and do casual labor jobs to support his mother. Together with his mother, they live in his uncles’ home who is a small-scale farmer. Titus also helps his uncle with farm work. A month ago, Titus fell at work and his hand was cut by a sharp object. Titus went to a nearby facility where his wound was sutured because the fracture was open, and a splint was applied in order to stabilize the fracture. Now he cannot work using his hand and therefore he depends entirely on his mother. When he realized that there was no improvement of his injury, Titus visited a nearby facility where he was referred to our medical partner's care center Kapsowar Hospital. On physical examination, the surgeon told him that he required an urgent surgery in order to repair his tendon and fix his fracture which had taken time to heal. Titus has no medical insurance and is worried about how he can pay for the care he needs. Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner can help. On September 27th, Titus will undergo a fracture repair procedure, called an open reduction and internal fixation. Titus will be able to go back to his work and continue to earn a living. He will be able to assist his mother. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $941 to fund this procedure. Titus says, “I get my income through working with my hands. Now that I cannot use them, I feel so bad. I don’t want to burden my mother who is also struggling. Kindly help me.”
