C4H Hernia Repair Program

Over the course of three months we have partnered with generous donors and provided hernia repair surgery for over twenty men, women, and children.  Most of the beneficiaries are remote village dwellers. Hernias are very common in countries where manual labor is needed for most jobs such as farming.  Each sponsorship provides a patient with fully paid medical treatment.  Food is  provided for the extent of the hospital stay as well as money for transportation back to their village when the patient is discharged.  The average cost for a single hernia requires a sponsorship of $425.00 and $500.00 for a bilateral hernia.
