Sinani underwent surgery to repair his inguinal hernia.

Sinani had a successful herniorrhaphy treatment due to a recurrent left inguinal hernia. He is now able to move well with no pain, discomfort, and is hopeful that he will have a better quality of life once he has fully recovered, especially now that he will be able to run his shop.

Sinani says, “May Allah Bless you. I will resume operating my shop for the survival of my family.”

Sinani is a shopkeeper from Uganda. He is married and a father to four children, all of whom are still in school. He earns a living by operating a small-scale retail shop and his wife is a small-scale farmer. They all live in a single-roomed house.

Ten years ago, Sinani developed an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately on July 7th he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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

Sinani shared, “I hope to get better with surgery and continue with my business to provide for my family.”
