Godfrey is a gentle and respectful man who is a father to four children, all of whom are studying in school. He started working at a young age, doing casual labor work on other people’s farms while taking care of his siblings. Because of Godfrey’s hard work, his sisters have become teachers and are married with families. Over time, Godfrey became a farm manager at a nearby convent, taking care of the pig farm there.
Recently, Godfrey started experiencing symptoms such as needle-like pain, especially when lifting heavy objects, which has worsened while cultivating the farm. Godfrey’s dream is to see his children thrive academically, and he is concerned that his health issues will keep him from working and supporting his family.
Recently, Godfrey traveled to seek treatment and was diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia. On March 14th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery with the support of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Now African Mission Healthcare is requesting $230 to help support Godfrey’s surgery.
Godfrey said, “I hope I will get well after the operation because it’s the only hope I’m left with. Nevertheless, without your help, I won’t be able to raise the funds required for my operation, therefore I will truly need your assistance.”
