Kiiza is a small-scale farmer and an elderly widow, who lost her spouse about 50 years ago. She has six children who are all married and now self-employed. She currently survives through farming in her local village, although her age and health condition limits her physical capacity to do so. She appeals for your support to improve her health in her old age and alleviate the financial burden that comes with medical treatment. Since last August, Kiiza has had a supra-umbilical hernia. She has been experiencing anterior abdominal pain and swelling which has significantly impacted her daily life. She can no longer engage in physical activities such as digging her field and washing her clothes, and even sleeping has become a challenge due to the discomfort she experiences. This condition has thus not only affected her health but also her ability to work and support herself financially. Without medical treatment, she faces the risk of intestinal obstruction, which could severely impact her quality of life. Fortunately, on April 12th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Kiiza's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently. Kiiza says, “I have lost the power to do my activities due to this condition. I hope after complete recovery with your support I'll be able to get back to my normal life.”
