Pascal is a small-scale farmer. He is a 70-year-old tall and elderly, yet still strong man. He walks from his home to the hospital on foot. He is the father of six children, with two daughters who are married - one is a teacher and the other is a nurse. His elder son is a policeman, and the rest are still studying. Pascal was an evangelist but retired a few years back. He now farms on limited land, growing food crops for home consumption and selling off the surplus to generate an income for the family.
Since 2019, Pascal has had left inguinal scrotal hernia. He has a swelling in the inguinal region and now can barely sit, stand, or walk — his face showing that he is in a lot of pain. Fortunately, on April 6th, he will undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Pascal’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.
Pascal says “I am looking forward to be relieved from the pain I have been having when given your support to be operated on.”
