Hernia Operations

Hernia Operations

We sponsored our first ever umbilical operation for a child in January 2022 and the operation was carried out at Masanga Hospital, it was a success !
Masanga Hospital – Healthcare, Education, Research

Umbilical hernias are very common in Sierra Leone and are mainly due to low birth weight and premature births. Umbilical hernia operations are relatively simple procedures which have a huge impact on patients’ lives.

Children’s hernias go untreated due to lack of family income and they worsen with time becoming unsightly, uncomfortable and dangerous to the child’s health (part of the intestine protrudes through the wall of the cavity around the umbilicus).

NHS UK Information on umbilical hernia operations:
Umbilical hernia repair – NHS (www.nhs.uk)

In this case the girl who had the sponsored operation was a 9 year old girl from Regent, her name is not real but her case is very real indeed like so many others who suffer needlessly. Below you can see the “before” and “after” photos.

Operations only cost £120 – (yes only £120 !!!) please consider setting up a monthly standing order so that we can fund more life changing and life saving operations ! People are too poor to pay for such operations and children often have to suffer the consequences of these uncomfortable and potentially dangerous hernias, operating and removing an hernia is life changing,,,, leaving them as they are are life threatening.

We have 5 children from the Regent area 2 children from Makeni that need urgent umbilical hernia operations and we need your help to fund these !!

Parents cannot fund them and some of the children involved are orphans.

Girl Aged 15 – £120
Girl Aged 14 – £120
Boy Aged 12 – £120
