Mebruka is a cute baby girl from Ethiopia who loves people and to play with others. She loves eating spaghetti. She has one older sister and she loves to play with her. Her mom is a house wife and her dad is a daily laborer. They live in a rented house and the dad’s income is very much limited for the expenses of the family.

Mebruka was born with an anorectal malformation, a congenital abnormality that leads to a complete or partial intestinal blockage. She needs to undergo a series of procedures to eliminate bowel dysfunction.

Mebruka is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her condition on November 5th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,500 to cover the total cost of Mebruka’s procedure and care.

After her recovery, Mebruka will no longer experience bowel dysfunction or be at risk of developing health complications in the future.

Her mother said, “It is my hope that my baby will heal and that makes me happy even now.”

Rombadi

Rombadi is a 34-year-old man from Uganda. He came to Nyakibale Hospital with inguinal area swelling that has been persistent for over five years. He feels pain and discomfort whenever he walks for a long distance, or does anything strenuous. This has strained his daily work as a bodaboda operator in western Uganda. Rombadi had never been to the hospital before due to financial constraints. Fortunately, he was referred to our partner facility where he was diagnosed with a right inguinal hernia. He requires herniorrhaphy to improve his lifestyle and productivity, and reduce the chances of further complications such as strangulation and intestinal obstruction. Rombadi's work provides him and his family with limited income, making life's requirement hard to meet. His wife works on the farm to provide additional income for their family. He is a father of three and sometimes works on the farm as well especially when business is down. Rombadi is not able to meet the cost of surgery and he appeals for critical support. Fortunately, on May 5th, he will undergo a hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Rombadi's surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. Rombadi says: “I hope that if all goes on well with my surgery, I will be able to continue with working to provide more to my family.”
