May 18, 2020

Mugarura is a small-scale farmer from Uganda and married with six children. One of them is a nurse, two are in secondary school, and the rest still in primary school. He and his wife practice farming to earn a living.

Since three years ago, Mugarura has had an inguinal hernia. The condition has affected his movements and he can’t stand for a long period of time or hardly do any activities in the garden due to his pain. Fortunately, on May 19th, 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 Mugarura’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Mugarura shared: “I look forward to getting treatment for my condition and continue to farm for my family.”

Mpumwire

Mpumwire is a farmer from Uganda. She was born into a family of eleven siblings, and they are all married and small-scale farmers. Mpumwire dropped out of school after she got pregnant and she had to remain home to take care of her child. When her child was grown to a certain age, Mpumwire took him to his father’s home. She later married another man and they had two children. When her husband decided to leave, she determined it was best for her to go to her parental home together with her children because she could no longer afford the rent. At home, Mpumwire earns a living through practicing small scale farming; she grows small gardens of onions, garlic, and other foods for their family to eat and to sell. Her mother at times supports her by paying the children’s school fees. Since two months ago, Mpumwire has been experiencing persistent severe lower abdominal pain, abnormal discharge, and prolonged mensuration. She has been diagnosed with multiple uterine myomas. She needs to undergo a hysterectomy, a procedure in which surgeons will remove her uterus. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Mpumwire's surgery. On May 19th, she will undergo gynecological surgery at our medical partner's care center. Once recovered, Mpumwire will be able to resume her daily activities free of pain. Mpumwire says: “I hope to get better after surgery and to continue with farming because my children are still young and need my care.”
