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.”
