Sanyu is a 53-year-old married man and a father of ten. Living in Uganda, Sanyu works as a farmer and cultivates tomatoes and onions to sell, putting most of his profits towards his children’s educations.
Sanyu began to have swelling in his right groin region about five years ago. Seeking treatment at a government hospital, he learned he had a hernia and needed to undergo hernia repair surgery to eliminate his pain. After he was unsuccessful in receiving treatment from a government hospital and was unable to afford the cost of surgery at a private hospital, Sanyu came to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, for help.
Sanyu is currently scheduled to undergo hernia repair surgery on April 26, and is requesting $249 to cover the expenses of this procedure.
After his operation, Sanyu hopes to resume farming so that he can keep his children in school.
