May 13, 2020

Tintina is a farmer from Uganda. He is a married father to five children who are all grown and doing manual labour jobs, apart from the youngest who is studying bricklaying and concrete practice at a local institute. Tintina has a banana and coffee plantation from which he earns a living for his family. His wife is also elderly, but can still cultivate small gardens of beans, maize, and millet for their family to eat. The little money he gets from the farm is used to pay for the tuition of his youngest child.

Since six years ago, Tintina has had an inguinal hernia. He is in pain and cannot help his wife on their farm due to the weakness and discomfort caused by the hernia. Fortunately, on May 14th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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

Tintina says: “I hope to get well after my surgery. I know that if all goes well, I will have a healthy life once again.”
