December 16, 2019

Beshesya is a farmer from Uganda. He is married with five children, all of whom are still studying. He sustains a living by practicing small scale farming and so does his wife.

Two years ago, Beshesya developed a scrotal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort and if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on December 17th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Beshesya’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Bashesya says, “I will be humbled by your support because I am really suffering with this condition.”
