Clemensia is a 35-year-old woman. She is a married woman with five children attending primary school. However, the burden of school fees and the costs of her medical treatment weigh heavily on the family. Her husband, a small-scale farmer, collaborates with his wife in cultivating food for their family and a modest surplus for sale. She earnestly appeals for your support to enable a positive transformation in her way of living, easing the financial strain on her family and fostering a healthier and more secure future for their family. For the past 20 years, Clemensia has had epigastric hernia. She has been experiencing swelling around the epigastric region, a condition that worsened about a month ago. This ailment has significantly impacted her daily work performance as a farmer. The pain, discomfort, and difficulty in eating now limits her mobility and work capacity. Clemensia seldom bends, and she avoids sleeping in a supine position, causing considerable inconvenience in her daily life. Without proper treatment, the persistent symptoms threaten to compromise her quality of life. She has sought medical assistance in the past, where she was given only painkillers due to financial constraints preventing her from undergoing a scan to investigate her condition further. On November 16th, Clemensia is scheduled to undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner's care center. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, requests $230 to fund Clemensia's surgery. Clemensia says, "I am financially unable to afford this cost of surgery. I appeal for your tremendous support to restore my health."
