James is a porter who helps at Rushasha Health Center - he has been working there for 40 years. The 60-year-old is a father to six children with three daughters, all teachers, and already married. Two of his sons are still in school. While James only has two months until retirement, he is worried that his sons have not yet finished school. He has a lot of school loans and is worried about whether he will be able to rest after his retirement.
Since six years ago, James has had a right inguinal hernia. This is more painful when he lifts something, walks long distances, and when he sits for long periods. Fortunately, on September 27th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund James’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
James says: “I know I will hustle and make sure my sons complete school once given a chance to regain my health after my surgery under your support.”
