Rwebyambo is a night watchman from Uganda. He is married with five children.

For two years, Rwebyambo has had an inguinal scrotal hernia. This hernia causes him pain and discomfort. If not treated, it may strangulate, causing intestinal tissue damage. Fortunately, on August 2, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

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