Charles is an 83-year-old man from Uganda who lives in a rural village. He and his wife, Molly, raised thirteen children. Charles currently lives with three grandchildren and works as a small farmer, growing bananas, potatoes, and cassava to feed his family.
In his free time, Charles enjoys going to church and watching the news at his neighbor’s home in the evening. He also enjoys listening to the radio for announcements and other informative talks.
Charles has a painful hernia, which has impaired his normal functioning and which needs surgical repair. Fortunately, on March 17, surgeons at our medical partner’s care center, Bwindi Community Hospital, will perform an unobstructed hernia repair for Charles. Our medical partner, The Kellermann Foundation, is requesting $229 for Charles’s treatment. This will pay for his surgery, medications, and five nights in the hospital.
After his operation, Charles looks forward to continuing to work on his farm.
His son, Godfrey, says, “We thank the donors for their support towards our father’s care. We do not have enough savings to help him get this surgery.”
