Sabiti underwent a hernia repair surgery.

Sabiti received herniorrhaphy treatment on his right inguinal region and it was a success. He has been relieved of pain and his quality of life has improved.

Sabiti says, “Thanks Watsi for saving my life because I had lost hope as I could not get money for the surgery despite my condition. I hope to resume cultivation since it’s my income source.”

Sabiti is a small-scale farmer from Uganda. He is married with four children: three girls and one boy. Two of them are married and are small-scale farmers, while the others are still studying.

For nineteen years, Sabiti has had a bilateral inguinal hernia. The hernia causes him pain and discomfort. Fortunately, on November 14, 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 Sabiti’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably.

Sabiti says, “After surgery, I hope to continue with cultivation for the wellbeing of my family.”
