April 20, 2020

Komugisha is a secretary from Uganda. She is married with two children, both are at home as they are still too young for school. Komugisha’s husband works on local home construction sites to earn a living. She works in a secondary school and earns a low pay, which doesn’t meet their family needs.

Since three months ago, Komugisha has had an epigastric hernia. This hernia causes her to have pain, especially after meals, causing her to fear eating. Fortunately, on April 21st, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $219 to fund Komugisha’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.
