Doreen underwent hernia repair surgery.

Doreen had a successful herniorrhaphy surgery. She has been relieved of the much pain and discomfort she had. Following her successful surgery and her recovery, Doreen will be able to resume her work as a nurse assistant, helping others to get healthy like she has.

Doreen said: “I had suffered from this condition thinking it would disappear but it never did. I did not have enough money for surgery but thanks to my donors I got the surgery and I can now work.”

Doreen is a nursing assistant and mother of three. Her oldest child is at the university, and Doreen shared how happy she is that her children can receive an education beyond what was available to her. After leaving school, Doreen started working as a cleaner before developing her knowledge and skills regarding patient care. She now works as a nurse assistant, and her husband works as a boda boda taxi driver.

For two years, Doreen has been experiencing an epigastric hernia. As a result, it is painful for her to do any strenuous work. She visited the care center of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), where the doctors determined she needs to undergo surgery to heal.

On April 14th, Doreen will undergo hernia repair surgery to help her live more comfortably and confidently upon recovery. AMH is requesting $230 to help fund Doreen’s surgery.

Doreen says, “I pray that I successfully undergo my surgery so as to regain my health. I want to continue working to sustain my family.”
