Promise is a mother of two. She and her husband were teachers before the COVID-19 pandemic, which cost them their jobs. They are currently earning their living through farming. The family lives in a double-roomed rental house in a nearby town.
The couple is expecting their third child. Promise has been attending antenatal care visits at Nyakibale Hospital. During one of her visits, the doctor recommended a caesarian section to prevent complications that may occur in a vaginal delivery. Promise is not in a financial position to cater for the surgery and is seeking for financial assistance.
Promise says, “My hope is I will deliver my baby safely. I also hope to continue teaching once schools reopen.”
