Kabagenyi is a farmer from Uganda. She is a widow and a mother of five children: two girls and three boys. Kabagenyi lost her husband five years ago. She is now looking after her children alone. Kabagenyi cultivates food for both home consumption and for sale.
For three years, Kabagenyi has had a reducible left inguinal hernia. The hernia causes her pain and discomfort and affects her ability to work in her farm. Fortunately, on February 14, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $249 to fund Kabagenyi’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably.
She says, “After surgery I will go for a thanks giving mass in church.”
