Binyagwa is a 33-year-old father of two children in primary school. His parents help him pay for the education of his children because he and his wife cannot afford it. They live on a small piece of land and cultivate food.
Nine months ago, Binyagwa developed a swelling in his right inguinal region. He can neither dig nor walk fast without feeling pain. He went to a hospital, where he was diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia and was advised to have surgery.
Unable to afford surgery, Binyagwa was referred to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF). His treatment is now scheduled for February 22. AMHF is requesting $249 to help fund this procedure.
After surgery, Binyagwa will make a full recovery and be free from his condition. He plans to start trading in cocoa and fish so that he can earn an income for his family.
