Komugisha is a farmer and a 47-year-old mother of five children. Her son is a mechanic while her younger children are still in school. She works on her small piece of land together with her husband. She also takes up casual labor on people’s farms to complement their income. She shared that she enjoys studying the Bible.
For 8 years, Komugisha has had a right inguinal hernia. The hernia causes her pain and weaknesses especially when she does strenuous works, stands for long, or when she coughs. Over time, the pain has severely affected her day to day work. With successful surgery, she will be free from hernia strangulation. Fortunately, on July 13th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Komugisha’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
Komugisha says “I will be blessed if funded for the planned surgery. I will be able to continue with hustling for my children since I desire to see them live a happy life.”
