I am privileged to be going to rural Ghana at the beginning of November with a team for the charity Operation Hernia. We will be operating on people with large hernias whose lives are debilitated by this easily treatable condition. I want to ask you to support this project, because with a small amount of money we can make a massive difference.
Having a hernia repaired in Africa is rare due to profound poverty, lack of medical resources and limited access to health professionals. As a result hernias accumulate over the years both in number and more importantly size. In Ghana, if a person is unable to work due to a hernia, no income comes into the family resulting in a cycle of further poverty and deprivation.
In rural Africa, it has been estimated that less than 1 in 5 inguinal hernias requiring surgery actually receive an operation. Patients with neglected hernias that strangulate may not even reach a hospital, and die needlessly. In rural areas previously fit young people die because simple surgical services are unaffordable.
Basic surgical services are not available and there is no possibility that Governments will be able to provide such facilities in the near future, therefore Operation Hernia have set up programs to treat people.
Speaking to people who have been to Ghana previously the difference that is made to peoples lives is amazing and very humbling. If you are able to donate, I would really appreciate it...the money goes directly to Operation Hernia.
