Ahereza is a 7-year-old student from Uganda. He is the middle child in a family of three children. His older brother is in primary three while his younger sister is still breastfeeding. His mother is a small-scale farmer. She oftentimes gets an income from working on other peoples farms. His father is causal laborer working on a chicken farm in Kampala.
Since two years ago, Ahereza has had an inguinal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on June 9th, 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 Ahereza’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Ahereza’s mother says: “I pray that my child could get fine after his surgery because he is really in deep pain. I will be grateful after he is operated with support from this program.”
