Twinomwe is a 44-year-old farmer and a married father to three sons and four daughters who are all still in school. He currently earns a living through small scale farming. The majority of his income comes from growing tomatoes, which has allowed him to afford school fees for his children. His wife is also a small scale farmer.
For two years, Twinomwe has had a right inguinal hernia. He experiences a sharp pain whenever he coughs or laughs, and when he is urinating.
Fortunately, on April 6th, Twinomwe will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund his surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Twinomwe shared, “I hope that I will be able to undergo my surgery and regain my health to continue with farming so I can educate my children, because I don’t want them to lack education like I do.”
