Nabasa did not undergo surgery.

Our medical partner shared an update on Nabasa’s treatment. When Nabasa arrived for his planned surgery, the medical team found that his condition was improving. He was given drugs with hope that he would not need surgery. With continued monitoring throughout the year, Nabasa has not returned with a need for surgery, so our partner has asked that we support another patient in need.

Nabasa is a farmer from Uganda. He is married with five children, all in primary and secondary schools. Nabasa earns a living through practicing small-scale farming growing maize and beans mostly, along with his wife.

Since one year ago, Nabasa has had an umbilical hernia. This hernia causes him an extended abdomen and pain. Fortunately, on February 20th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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

Nabasa says, “I hope all for a better life after my surgery so as to continue with my farming.”
