Jenipher is a 37-year-old woman. She is married, and she and her husband work as farmers to provide income for her family. She proudly shared that all of their children are in school. Lately, it has been difficult for Jenipher to work due to the condition she is experiencing.
For eight months, Jenipher has had an incisional hernia. Earlier this year, she underwent a curative laparotomy surgery on her abdomen, but the incision site began to swell and cause pain, especially when she worked. Jenipher tried managing the condition with pain medication, but the pain became too severe. She visited the care center at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Upon review, doctors recommended a hernia repair surgery.
On November 4th, Jenipher will undergo hernia repair surgery at AMH’s care center. Upon recovery, she will be able to live more comfortably and confidently. AMH is requesting $230 to fund Jenipher’s surgery.
Jenipher shared, “In the last surgery, I sold off my land to offset hospital bill. I was worried when I was told I needed to be operated on again. I appeal for your help. My children are still young and need my support, but I can’t with poor health.”
