Kyarisiima is a 28-year-old mother with three children and currently expecting her fourth. Kyarisiima is the firstborn in a family of two children. Her sister is married and earns a living as a small scale farmer, as do both of Kyarisiima’s parents. Kyarisiima stopped school after completing the seventh grade due to her family’s lack of school fees. Instead, she farmed at home until she was married when she was 20 years old. Currently, she and her husband both practice farming in order to support the family.

Kyarisiima presented with scan results indicating that she has moderate oligohydramnios, or a low level of amniotic fluid. She reports that she delivered all of her children via c-section due to pregnancy risks and on Kyarisiima’s last antenatal visit, doctors recommended that she deliver via caesarean section.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Kyarisiima receive this procedure. They are requesting $252 to fund her procedure. On January 26th, surgeons at their care center will perform a C-section surgery that will allow her to deliver her baby safely.

Kyarisiima shared, “I am really so happy having found out about Watsi and believe that I will have a healthy child because of your support. Thank you.”

Charity

Charity is a 28-year-old woman from Kenya. She is the eldest in her family and is now married and has a newborn baby who is two months old. Her husband works as a clerk at a local dairy factory, where he earns enough to feed their family. Charity was working at the same factory, but was laid off from her job due to the COVID-19 pandemic. She is not currently working and spends her time at home taking care of her child. Since August 2020, when Charity was pregnant, she started experiencing pain in her upper abdomen that radiated to the back. Charity had visited several different health centers but showed no improvement, and later decided to come to Watsi's Medical Partner Care Center Nazareth Hospital. She underwent a scan, which showed that she has a large gallstone. The doctor recommended that she undergo a cholecystectomy. Without treatment, Charity's condition may become more complicated and cause her gall bladder inflammation, or a blocked bile duct or pancreatic duct. However, Charity is unable to meet the cost of her care and appeals for financial support. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare. is helping Charity receive treatment. She is scheduled to undergo a cholecystectomy on March 9th at our medical partner's care center. Surgeons will remove the gallbladder due to the gallstone causing pain and possibly infection. This procedure will cost $788, and she and her family need help raising money. Charity shared, "The pain is too much at times and I feel some relief when I vomit. I am hoping to get support so that I can be well and be at peace to nurse my baby."
