Byarugaba is a married 43-year-old carpenter and a father to five children, including two sons and three daughters who are all in school. He has a small carpentry workshop where he crafts handles for hoes, wooden machetes, and other goods. His dream is to see his children excel in life, so he works very hard. His wife is a small scale farmer who raises chickens. In his free time, he enjoys watching football and his favorite team is Manchester United!
For eight months, Byarugaba has had a right inguinal hernia and bilateral hydrocele. He has difficulty standing or walking long distances and his condition has affected his work. He was examined at a local health center and surgery was recommended. If not treated, the hernia could become strangulated.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Byarugaba to receive treatment. On July 6th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. After surgery, he will hopefully live more comfortably and confidently. Now, AMH is requesting $230 to fund his procedure and care.
Byarugaba shared, “I am looking forward to surgery which I hope that with your support will be successful. I will be able to continue with my carpentry work to see that my children get a brighter future.”
