Musiimenta has decided to postpone hernia surgery.

Our medical partner just shared an update with us on Musiimenta’s planned surgery. After further consideration, Musiimenta expressed that she would like to have more children and the doctor noted that if she has this surgery now, she may be at higher risk of pre-term labor. She hopes to grow her family and then seek hernia treatment afterwards. Our partner has requested that we direct our support to another patient in need.

Sending our best to Musiimenta for a healthy road ahead!

Musiimenta is a 22-year-old from Uganda. She is a married mother to one child who is still breast feeding and operates a small retail shop. Musiimenta sometimes practices farming as an additional income source and for their family’s home consumption.

Her husband is a small-scale farmer who earns a living from his banana and coffee plantation. He is an orphan and the firstborn in a family of five children who are all his responsibility. They live in a family owned two roomed semi-permanent house together with her husband’s five siblings.

For three months now, Musiimenta has had an incision hernia after a caesarean section late last year. She cannot lift heavy items because of pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on May 26th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Musiimenta’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Musiimenta says: “I hope to get well after my surgery and be free from this condition which had made my life a misery.”
