June 13, 2022

Julius is a 52-year-old farmer. Together, he and his wife have five children, all of whom are in school. Due to a lack of funds, Julius was unable to go beyond the secondary level of education when he was young, and he now works farming bananas, while his wife teaches at a local primary school.

For nine months, Julius has lived with a hernia. This hernia causes him pain, and prevents him from working, as the pain always worsens whenever he stands or bends down for long periods of time as he needs to do to farm. Julius was advised to have surgery to repair his hernia, but he and his wife cannot cover the costs of the procedure.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is here to help Julius access the care that he needs. They are raising $230 to fund Julius’ surgery, which is scheduled to take place on June 14th at Karoli Lwanga Hospital in Nyakibale. Once completed, this procedure should allow Julius to live more comfortably and confidently.

Julius says: “I am in deep physical pain. I can’t do anything, but I have hope that I will get better after surgery, and will continue with farming to sustain my family.”
