May 13, 2020

Sanyu is a 45-year-old farmer from Uganda. He is a married father to six children; all are still in school. He earns a living through practicing small scale farming and mostly grows cabbages and tomatoes to earn an income. He also has a banana plantation and rears a cow or two for milk. Sanyu operates the farm together with his wife and children and the money he gets has enabled him to pay for his children’s school fees, and provide for the basic needs of his family.

Almost two years ago, Sanyu developed an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort and if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on May 14th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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

Sanyu says, “I will be grateful when my condition is treated and I can continue with farming in order to support my family and pay for my children’s school fees.”
