Edward is a hardworking father who practices small-scale farming together with his wife. They have 4 children who are all in primary school. They live in a brick house with 2 rooms, and their main source of cooking energy is firewood. Edward attended school up to primary class 3, and he could not proceed due to a lack of school fees.
Edward has had a hydrocele for the past year. It started as a small painful swelling in his groin area. He decided to see a doctor after noticing blood in his urine. In addition to the swelling, he has had episodes where it is very difficult for him to use the restroom. He also feels uncomfortable while walking and can no longer walk long distances. His farming productivity has been compromised in his current condition.
Fortunately, our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) can help. On September 4th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery. Edward needs help raising $170 to fully fund the surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Edward says, “After treatment, I will continue with farming which will help me meet my family’s cost of living.”
