Brian is a caring, energetic 28-year-old man from southwestern Uganda. He and his wife have two young kids. Their youngest is in nursery school, and their oldest is in primary school class three. Brian’s parents passed away, and he could only complete primary school due to a lack of school fees. He shared that he works hard so his children can thrive and complete their education, but his medical condition has limited him. Brian works as a casual laborer, while his wife works as a peasant farmer.
For the past six months, Brian has had a left inguinal hernia. This condition causes him discomfort and makes lifting anything heavy or performing strenuous work impossible. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Brian receive treatment. On April 4th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Once completed, this procedure will allow him to live more comfortably and confidently. AMH is requesting $230 to fund Brian’s surgery.
Brian said, “I am the breadwinner of my family. In such poor health, I am unable to do anything by myself. I will need your support to regain my health to continue working hard to sustain my family.”
