about Innocent's recovery.

September 13, 2022

Innocent is a father of five children all of them in school. He managed to finish class 7 himself but could not proceed with his education. He later decided to be a preacher. From his preaching services, he is paid only $30 every Sunday. He is married and together with his family, they live a 3-roomed mud-built house.

For four years, Innocent has had right inguinal hernia. The hernia presents as a swelling around his inguinal area and makes it uncomfortable for him to walk. He went to a government hospital but could not receive surgery. At Nyakibale Hospital, he could not raise the money needed for surgery and thus appealed for help. Fortunately, on September 13th, he will be able to undergo hernia repair surgery at our medical partner’s care center.

Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $230 to fund Innocent’s surgery. Once completed, this procedure will hopefully allow him to live more comfortably and confidently.

Innocent says: “it will be a great honour and I will be humble seeing my health improve. I really have a lot of things to do but with this pain, I can’t do much yet and I know my family needs me.”
