about Ahumuza's recovery.

May 18, 2020

Ahumuza is a 3-year-old from Uganda. She is an only child and her mother is a subsistence farmer of beans, potatoes, and maize for their family to eat. She at times works on other people’s farms as a manual laborer in case there is an urgent need of money for items such as salt, soap, and paraffin. Ahumuza’s father is employed as a carpenter.

Since birth, Ahumuza has had an umbilical hernia. If not treated, the hernia may result in intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on May 21st, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Ahumuza’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Ahumuza’s mother says, “I hope that she will get better after her surgery is done because she is even having poor growth milestones because of this condition.”
