Beteitse underwent hernia repair surgery.

Beteitsa had his herniorrhaphy treatment and all went well! He now feels much better with only some small pain around the excision site. He is really thankful for everything and hopes for a new life after he has fully recovered.

Beteitsa says: “I really want to thank you so much for saving my life as I could not have managed to afford the cost of my surgery had it not been your support. I hope to get better and continue with teaching after the COVID lockdown.”

Beteitse is a teacher from Uganda. He is married and is a father to four daughters. Upon graduating college, he became a third grade teacher. Following in his footsteps, three of his daughters are primary school teachers, and the fourth one is still studying and is in senior four.

Since two years ago, Beteitse has had an umbilical hernia. The hernia causes him weakness and pain and prevents him from working and supporting his family.

Unfortunately, this procedure is very costly for Beteitse and his family. His only source of income is from his job of teaching in a primary school. He also does some farming, because the money he earns from teaching alone is not enough to support his family. His wife is also a small scale farmer and has little income. They are appealing for financial help.

Fortunately, on November 3rd, Beteitse will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Beteitse’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Beteitsa shared, “I hope for a new life and health after my surgery to continue with teaching after I have completely recovered.”
