Kabare is a farmer from Uganda. Kabare is married and a father to three children. He has two girls and one boy, all are married and are also small-scale farmers. He earns a living from his small banana and coffee plantation but at a one time he also grew small gardens of beans, maize and millet for home consumption. But he no longer does this because of pain which he experiences while cultivating.

Three years ago, Kabare developed a right inguinal hernia. His hernia causes him weakness and pain and prevents him from working. Fortunately, on July 21st, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $230 to fund Kabare’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Kabare says, “Once my surgery is done, I hope to recover from this condition and resume with farming to provide for my family.”
