Jemusi is a 29-year-old man from Kabwazi Village in Dedza District in Malawi. Jemusi lives with his mother and brother. He has one child from his previous marriage, who lives with his former wife. Jemusi works hard to support his child through small-scale farming.
Since he was young, Jemusi has experienced painful swelling on the left side of his scrotum. He was diagnosed with a left inguinal hernia and underwent hernia repair surgery at Nkhoma Hospital in 2012. Recently, Jemusi noticed that the painful swelling has returned and he went back to Nkhoma Hospital, where he was diagnosed with recurrent left inguinal hernia.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $500 to fund repeat hernia repair surgery for Jemusi, which is scheduled to take place on April 19th at Nkhoma Hospital.
Jemusi’s hernia has impacted his life negatively, causing him constant pain and discomfort. Treatment is essential to improving Jemusi’s quality of life and ensuring that he doesn’t suffer any serious complications in the future.
Jemusi says: “I am glad that help has been found for me to receive treatment. I am looking forward to finally getting healed of this condition.”
