May 18, 2020

Ainembabazi is a student from Uganda. She is a senior four candidate at her school, born in a family of six children. Her sisters are small-scale farmers and her brothers are motorcycle taxi operators, with one still in school.

Ainembabazi’s mother is also a farmer who locally grows food crops like beans, maize, and potatoes for home consumption and sells the surplus. Her father suffered a mental disorder and ran away from home. They haven’t heard from him in two years.

Sine one year ago, Ainembabazi has had a supraumbilical hernia. This hernia causes her pain and if not treated, it may result in intestinal tissue death and damage. Fortunately, on May 19th, she will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $241 to fund Ainembabazi’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow her to live more comfortably and confidently.

Ainembabazi says: “I hope to be relieved from this pain after my surgery goes on successfully.”
